It's been good to see coal traffic (and, as a result, all traffic) pick up just a bit on the Moffat lately. Earlier this week, there were two empties that departed within 20 minutes of each other. The night before this shot, there was a load that came east. Now, on this day, another empty is headed for the Colorado high country! Note the oscillating ditch lights on this lead AC4400CW. This unit was delivered in June 1995 as SP 249. Alas, it didn't even keep that number for five years as it went to UP 6527 on September 14, 1999. A very short time later, on February 28, 2000, it then changed again to UP 6422.
