This eastbound BNSF manifest has a Denver-based crew on board, which is a little unusual. Why is that? Since the start of 2016, BNSF trains on the Moffat typically run with Grand Junction-based crews. BNSF used to have a crew change point at Kremmling. Denver-based crews ran the trains Denver to Kremmling (and vice versa). Grand Junction-based crews ran the trains Kremmling to Grand Junction (and vice versa). After that crew change point was eliminated, Grand Junction-based crews now take the trains all the way to Denver. That is, if they have time! The Grand Junction crew "died" (ran out of hours to work) at Crescent, and the train held there for a few hours earlier in the day. A Denver crew was sent up to take the train the remaining 30-ish miles in to town.
