Remarks & Notes 
Thick dark storm clouds are gathering the east but UP 6809 won't have to worry as it will be heading west into the Moffat Tunnel and sunny skies. The only problem for UP 6809 is the dispatcher won't give him the clearance to enter the tunnel because it is still venting from the last train. But soon, it will be dragging it's long empty coal train into the 6.2 mile tunnel.
