With a fresh crew that got on the train at Bond, this manager's special follows the Colorado River on the Dotsero Cutoff. The pair of brand new ET44AHs look mighty fine on the point of the train. I'm not sure why several UP vice presidents were taking a tour of the Moffat...although I'd like to think it is preparation for lowering the floor in the Moffat Tunnel so they can run double stacks! (Yeah, right...and Tennessee Pass will open right after that!)

I feel like that would benefit BNSF more than UP.

Perfect location along the Colorado River west of Bond, Colorado. What a pleasant reward for all your efforts.
