Remarks & Notes 
An eastbound coal empty bound for the West Elk Mine led by Southern Pacific AC4400CW No. 158 meets another coal train about to begin loading at Oxbow Mining’s Elk Creek Mine at Somerset, Colorado, on June 26, 2003. During this era, almost all coal trains on Union Pacific’s North Fork Subdivision were powered by SP AC4400CWs. Unfortunately, an underground fire and collapse in December 2012 closed Elk Creek Mine and it is now in the process of selling off its equipment, handing over its water treatment plant to residents and weighing whether to tear down the concrete coal silo that looms over the town and close for good.

Some how, these locomotives have managed to last this long with the colors of their previous owners, which have since vanished into history.
