After meeting a coal load at Leyden, this light power move got a clear signal from the dispatcher to head west. The consist is headed for the yard at Glenwood Springs. There, the units will wait until they are needed as mid-train swing helpers on eastbound coal loads coming from the West Elk Mine on the North Fork Branch. If you see these light power moves on the Moffat, chances are the units will always been in multiples of three, as three units are typically cut into those eastbound loads. Until February 2, 2004, the lead unit in this consist was SP 253. Having been delivered in June of 1995, it has now spent more of its life as a UP unit than an Espee unit!
