There has been massive flooding in the Omaha, NE area this summer. Consequently, BNSF has rerouted a lot of traffic through Colorado. As a part of the reroutes, several coal empties have run north on the Front Range Sub. Here, one waits for the dispatcher to allow the train to proceed into Broomfield for a meet.

I caught the KCS 4119 along with another KCS unit (gray) and a BNSF green MAC, leading a northbound empty hopper train through Greenland Colorado at 0920 on July 9, 2011. At 0933 came the northbound BNSF 9245, making a crew change right at the Greenland crossing. It was quite a good morning with another KCS leader, KCS 3901, showing up less than 2 hours later.
