UP stopped running manifests between Denver and Salt Lake via the Moffat for a few years in the early 2000's. When they returned in 2005, they would frequently run with near solid sets of SD70Ms. Not long after, GE ACs took over, making the power virtually identical to coal train power. However, with the recent power shortage on all the Class 1's, EMDs have been making a strong come back on Moffat manifests! Two SD70Ms and two SD40Ns (rebuilt SD40-2s) join a single GE for the journey west over the Moffat.
