I decided to try for a different take on the steel tower between Leyden and Rocky. You'll commonly find this tower - which I believe has something to do with one of the coal mines once located in the area - in shots taken from the intermediate at Chemical near MP 14.5. Here, an eastbound (empty) rail train passes by the odd structure with a pair of SD70Ms.

Cool, thanks! And I agree, the "proper" combination of radiators and nose are the key, viz:

Hey Jim! The second (flared) SD70M is UP 3913. I should clarify to say that I agree with you...while I love the SD70M in general, the flared SD70M (with the "good" nose) is definitely my favorite.

Kevin, I can't quite see the number on the trailing, flared-radiator SD70M. Do you have that info? Those are *my* personal favorite modern-era locomotives...
