An eastbound UP manifest, which includes an SD70M in the consist, creeps along at the base of Coal Creek Canyon, crossing CO-72. The blazing hot temperatures of the last week have a lot of slow orders out there, protecting against the possibility of sun kinks in the tracks. The trains was barely making 10 MPH right here.

Thanks John. That is what happens when you mindlessly copy and paste! I fixed the city for the photo.

Nice shot but it looks a lot closer to Blue Mtn and Plainview then Pinecliffe to me. Still a good pic.
