A nearly-matched trio (save for the burn on the side of the lead unit) of elephant style ES44ACs lead BNSF's Denver-Provo trackage rights train on the Moffat just east of Sheridan. The track next to the train is currently the Arvada Siding but soon it will be turned into Main 2. The new Arvada Siding is being built just to the left of BNSF Golden Sub near the right side of the picture.

Great shot, Kevin! I like the burn scars on 6179, I would have liked to have seen that fire. I really enjoy the BN engines but my favorite is the old school Rio Grande that are rarely seen anymore. I live in Castle Rock and get to see a good variety coming through town; southbound on the westside of town and the northbound to the east of town.  
Somtimes I sit at Palmer Lake and get the pleaseure of seeing them go from the two tracks down to the one, heading south.  
I enjoy your photos, keep up the good work!
