Making its way west of Byers Canyon, this train will soon be able to pick up some speed. Freights are limited to 20 MPH through the canyon due its tight curves, but the flat terrain between Byers Canyon and Kremmling allow for freights to move up to 60 MPH. The train cannot speed up just yet as its tail end is still in the canyon, as noted to the left side of the frame.
