The southbound Valmont coal empty heads south alongside Midway Blvd on the approach to the north siding switch of Broomfield. It is a beautiful (and hot) August afternoon as Longs Peak stands tall in the distance. The Valmont train has already received a warrant from the Front Range Sub dispatcher to proceed south to Denver (after stopping to align the south siding switch at Broomfield for the main track).

You might think something about this SD70MAC looks a bit strange. I thought so too. The nose looked too orange somehow. Then it hit me...the headlight is above the cab! On every BNSF SD70MAC that I remember seeing (prior to this one), the headlight is on the nose.
