Snow is coming down pretty heavy in the higher elevations as this Denver to Salt Lake freight train fights the weather and the grade towards Moffat Tunnel. The train is seen here just down from Cliff siding. Quite the consist for this drag freight as you have a Grande GP40, 2 UP switcher engines, a UP SD60M, a CNW Dash 8, and a SP tunnel motor.
Coal and steel don't go bad. This album features long, slow, heavy freight trains; drag freights, slop freights, dead freights, etc. Trains with lots of power, and lots of different cargo slogging along behind.
