The Belt Industrial Lead (or simply "Belt Line") was used by Rio Grande to interchange with Rock Island and Union Pacific. Now, it is used by Union Pacific for all coal loads headed north or east out of Denver. Or, as in this case, coal empties coming in from the north or east. Manifests use the Belt Line as well, but coal trains are certainly more common. This coal empty is approaching Broadway and the line in to North Yard. The highway in the background is I-25.
