The clouds on this particularly afternoon were really playing havoc with the camera. Dark shadows in the foreground (on the train) contrasted greatly with the brightly lit buildings of Denver in the distance. However, you take what you can get and, on this evening, what we can get is a westbound "Public Service" coal empty. This train is running from the Xcel Cherokee Power Station in Denver, headed for the Energy Mine loadout on the Craig Branch. Once the last generator at the Cherokee Power Station switches from coal to natural gas (scheduled for 2017), that will spell the end of this coal train on the Moffat.
