A string of 11 light engines makes its way west on the main at Leyden. The first six units will be used as mid-train swing helpers on coal trains coming off the North Fork Branch. Been awhile since I've seen such a power move on behalf of coal trains! The last five units are all older geeps that will join the 150+ units already being stored in Grand Junction.

North Yard fuel track was happy to see the four switchers depart for Grand Junction and free up the East Service track. A couple attempts to send the switchers west didn't work account air brake issues. All issues resolved and units now in storage.
