A westbound copper train, which consists of gondolas loaded with dirt which contains copper tailings, heads west out of Leyden. Despite the relative short length of the trains, they are heavy. Even with five units, this train will not be able to make more than about 15 MPH up the 2% grade of the Moffat.
