Leaves of a tree frame this shot of an early morning eastbound coal load approaching the grade crossing at Simms Street in Arvada. This is the Valmont coal train. It is headed for the Valmont power plant in Boulder, CO. It is one of the coal trains that regularly loads at Energy Mine on the Craig Branch. If Valmont goes to all natural gas (which they are pushing for in 2017 or 2018), it'll be another coal train taken off the Moffat! Another thing that probably won't be on the Moffat in 2017 is SP 352! One of the last-remaining unpatched Espee units. Not bad, considering it has been almost 19 years since Espee ceased to exist.
