This is an angle I had never shot before prior to today. This eastbound coal train is descending from Tunnel One, crossing over CO-72 at the base of Coal Creek Canyon, and headed for the detector at MP 22.6 and Blue Mountain Road crossing. I wanted to get this because this scene will likely be changing in the near future. The land behind the train in the distance has been annexed by the City of Arvada and approved for development! 90 single family homes are set to be built on the hillside in the distance!
