Although there have been a lot of rerouted coal trains on the Front Range Sub this summer, this empty with a colorful consist is not one of them! This is in fact the Valmont coal train, returning to Denver from Boulder. If nothing changes with Xcel Energy's plans, this train will cease by the end of 2017 as Valmont plans to shut down its coal-fired generator.

Nice moody shot, Kevin! Plus that's an amazing variety of power. Good job.
