The devastating floods that Colorado endured the second week of September severely damaged the Moffat Tunnel Sub. Washouts at Rocky and west of Plain, rock slides throughout the Tunnel District and a derailed train near Cliff. The main track was taken out of service between West Leyden and West Cliff (roughly 25 miles) so crews to implement repairs. Here, at West Leyden, a work train filled with rock has just spoken with the EIC (Employee In Charge) of the OOS limits as well as DS-86 to get flagged past the red signal in to the OOS limits.
