Remarks & Notes 
Montana Rail Link leads BNSF trackage rights train out of Tunnel 29 east of Pinecliffe, CO. I still laugh about catching this. I had spent most of the day hiking around Big 10 photographing whatever showed up. My piece of junk radio shack scanner crackled the faintest conversation where I thought the dispatcher talked to an MRL something east. I hiked the 45 mins out of Big 10 and drove west completely doubting what I'd maybe heard and fully prepared to also miss the ghost train if it happened to be between Plain and Cliff. I arrived at Cliff right as a work train was backing into the siding at east Cliff and lo and behold MRL 316 east was waiting in the siding. Even then I barely had the time for a mad dash to tunnel 29, sliding, trying to climb up deep snow in the shade as the train crossed South Boulder Creek and popped out of tunnel 29.
