One of the only shots I have of the old "CSDU" train came during a chase east from Crescent in August 1996. Here, the Colorado Springs Department of Utilities coal load makes its way through the S-Curves at Blue Mountain. In the late 90's early 2000's, the old black CSDU cars (with the initials on the side) were completely replaced by new silver aluminum hoppers without any initials.
