This coal load is running in a typical 2x3x1 configuration. These three mid-train swing helpers were added to the train in Glenwood Springs. They assisted the train in its climb up the west slope of the Continental Divide. Upon arriving in Denver, the units will be cut out of the train and serviced. The train will continue east with two units on the point and a sole DPU on the tail end.
