After a fantastic day in the Colorado High Country along the Moffat, it is time for a parting shot of this eastbound coal load that has UP 1988 on the point. The train is starting to slow as the head end is now on the 2% grade. The train would ultimately slow to 5 MPH on its way up to the tunnel, but it did not stall out and ultimately made it over the top of the hill.
