An eastbound coal load slowly winds its way around the Big Ten Curve. There is a 10 MPH slow order on the curve on this day, as the wind has kicked up and there are mighty strong gusts. Any time that is the case, UP issues a 10 MPH slow order...while the hoppers on the inside of the curve do serve as a windbreak, UP would rather play it safe than sorry.
