A pair of SD70ACes bring up the tail end of an eastbound coal load that has just crossed South Boulder Creek east of Tolland. More SD70s have appeared on the Moffat lately. Some speculation as to the reason has to due with the upcoming closing of Burnham. Burnham has primarily serviced GEs for the past 15 years. With it closing, UP not be as picky as to what power makes it into Denver.
