UP eastbound coal
Title:  UP eastbound coal
Description:  It was zero fahrenheit, with a windchill of -20, while skiers ignored this Yampa Valley coal train that would force us all to wait another twenty minutes for the arrival of the Ski Train. Second unit was an unpatched SP AC4400CW. There was also a midtrain DPU set of another AC4400CW and a SD90MAC. Pushing on the rear was another DPU set, this one, one UP and one SP AC4400CW. UP #6998 is a September 1999 product of Erie. The train is ascending a 2.0% grade from Tabernash to the West Portal of the Moffat Tunnel. It is probably off the Craig Branch.
