The rocks above Tunnel One are always an inviting place to hang out and watch westbounds! Such is the case here as this coal empty...with a LOT of power...climbs toward the east portal of Tunnel One. Only the first three units are actually online, however. The other five units are offline and will be set out in the yard at Glenwood Springs to serve as swing power for eastbound loads coming out of Grand Junction.

One other thing that I like about this picture. Through pure coincidence, the ID of this picture is 103911, marking the 3,911th picture added to my site. I find it happy that this picture should be added on the 10th Anniversary of September 11th.
