Just from looking at this scene, it is hard to believe that it is March! This eastbound coal load heads slowly in to the siding at Leyden where it will wait to meet the California Zephyr and a second westbound. If you look toward the west end, you can see the two mid-train swing helpers. Most coal trains on the Moffat have three mid-train swing helpers. Those trains have the three units cut out in Denver for the trip east on the plains. This train, however, is headed for the Xcel Energy Valmont Power Plant in Boulder.
