Just south of Greeley, a northbound coal empty has a clear signal. The empty came from the Nixon power plant south of Colorado Springs. It'll load at the North Antelope mine in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming.

Jim, most of the time I can figure out the symbol by listening to the scanner, especially if the train is close to a yard. Yards seem to typically refer to trains by their symbol rather than their unit number. In this case, the "CSUX" on the cars gave it away!
