It is well past sunset as this westbound BNSF manifest rolls west down the siding at Plain. The crew on this train is based out of Grand Junction. This is a recent change on BNSF as they eliminated the crew change point in Kremmling. Grand Junction crews now take eastbounds as close to Denver as possible. If they don't make it, a van comes and picks them up and a Denver crew takes the train the rest of the way in. Then, the Grand Junction crew (after staying the night in Denver) takes a westbound back to Grand Junction.
