An eastbound coal load (coming from the North Fork Branch and headed for Kentucky) heads through the curves at Blue Mountain and Coal Creek Canyon. In the foreground, the headend of the train passes the hotbox detector at MP 22.6. 1/3 mile away (as the crow flies), three mid-train swing helpers descend the grade from Tunnel 1. Among the mid-train swings is UP 7964, the 5000th Evolution Series locomotive.
