Valmont Power Plant in Boulder receives its coal from a joint effort between UP and BNSF. UP hauls the coal from the mines in the Colorado high country down to Denver, where the train is turned over to BNSF. BNSF takes the train to Boulder via the Front Range Sub and delivers the loaded hoppers to the power plant. On this particular afternoon, two B40-8W's switch some cars around at the plant.
