Here is a statement I honestly never thought I'd say: coal trains are a dying breed. Less than ten years, there were rumors that the Moffat was nearing capacity due to all the coal trains. As many as 24 trains (12 each way) were running in a 24 hour period. Now, 1 train in a 24 hour period seems lucky.
