There are two coal mines on the Craig Branch: Energy and Axial. Since 2009, only Energy has been loading coal trains that run off the branch. Axial has been loading trains that are "captive", remaining on the branch providing coal for power plants in the Steamboat Springs area. However, that recently changed and here is a shot of the first coal train to load at Axial and come off the Craig Branch in a decade! The symbol is the CAITM-09.
