I'm guessing the 90 HPT (give or take) is probably sufficient to keep the West Local moving up the grade of the Moffat. The local is actually not headed for the Rocky Spur on this particular Wednesday. It is instead headed for East Portal! The tank car is filled with gas for the backup generator for the Moffat Tunnel's ventilation system.
