The southern end of the Front Range Sub is one of those rare subdivisions where might actually see a northbound coal empty or a northbound coal load! Northbound coal loads head toward the Valmont power plant in Boulder and are pretty common. Coal empties however only come to the Front Range Sub when they are headed for the Powder River Basin and have been re-routed. Such was the case on this day as this PRB coal empty heads north through the siding at Broomfield after a meet.

"Power", "Powder" ... what's the difference but a single letter! Thanks for catching my typo. Sometimes my fingers type without listening to all the instructions from the brain.

Should that be "Powder" River Basin? Of course, it makes more sense as the "Power" River Basin!
