Jeremiah, to use the word "chase" would be a bit generous! You are spot-on that trains with this tonnage don't head west too often. Before realizing it was a ballast train, I wondered why an empty coal load was moving SO slow as it came out of Leyden.

These look like extremely heavy trains--westbound on the Moffat must be a punishing test of durability for the trains, the tracks and everything else. Westbounds aren't normally this heavy on this part of the route.
I'll bet it was a treat to chase!
