So this is what constitutes a train on the Moffat in 2016, eh? This light power move is actually headed for Phippsburg on the Craig Branch. UP runs coal trains that are "captive" to the Craig Branch. Essentially, the trains run from the Axial Mine to the Ute and Hayden power plants. All of this is located on the branch. The power used on those trains needs to be switched out from time-to-time (for maintenance, etc). So this power will be left in Phippsburg and, in a few days, the current shuttle power will likely run light back to Denver.
