An eastbound coal train crosses over Indiana Street in Arvada as the train approaches a clear signal at West Leyden. This train is headed for the Cherokee Power Plant in northeast Denver. With only one generator still burning coal, this "Public Service" coal train is running increasingly less. And, by the end of 2017, that last coal generator will be powered down and the plant will burn natural gas exclusively, spelling the end of this coal train...and possibly all coal traffic on the Craig Branch.
