There was a relatively brief period in 2015, when oil prices were much higher, it looked as though oil trains might become a regular staple on the Moffat. Both BNSF and UP seemed to run about one a week. However, when prices dropped and it became less economical to ship by rail, the new trains all but evaporated! BNSF still runs one...occasionally...though they are hard to predict. One happened to be rolling east here at Leyden on Martin Luther King Day.
