The Missouri Pacific heritage unit, UP 1982, leads an eastbound coal load through the siding at Mesa. The train was loaded at the West Elk Mine on the North Fork branch in Western Colorado and is now headed for the plains on the Limon Sub. The last time I caught the unit leading a train in Colorado was almost exactly four years ago when it led a manifest on the Moffat on July 13, 2014.
