A trio of near-matched UP GEs leads the eastbound "Public Service" coal load in the siding at Leyden. I say "near-matched" because the lead unit is an ET44AH whereas the last two are both ES44ACs. Close enough! It is also highly unusual to see a coal load on the Moffat with anything other than two units on the point. This particular train is longer than most on the Moffat though. It is 115 cars and nearly 6,900 feet long. It would fit in the siding at Leyden with less than 200 feet to spare.
