When the Moffat was original built, the tracks needed to gain a fair amount of altitude in a short distance. Consequently, the tracks use a fair number of loops to stretch out the distance. Here, an eastbound coal load is headed through Little Ten Loop at West Rocky. The head end is approach the switch for the Rocky Industrial Lead as the mid-train swing helpers come up on Little Ten.
