A C44AC-CTE brings up the rear of this eastbound coal train, loaded at the Somerset mine on the North Fork branch in western Colorado. The unit is facing the "wrong way", which really only means anything to railfans! In reality, thanks to DPU technology, the direction the DPU's are facing is irrelevant.

Good eye, David! The coal train was comprised hoppers from all kinds of railroads, most of them long gone. There were a few DRGW, and lots of BN, MP, CNW and UP.

Note the DRGW car in front of the pusher unit/DPU
