Three mid-train DPUs assist in dynamic braking as this coal train descends down from Big Ten Loop. This coal train has the typical configuration for loaded coal trains on the Moffat, with two units on the point, three mid-train, and one on the rear. These three unis will be cut out of the train when it reaches Bypass 2 at North Yard. The train will continue on with only three total units, the two on the point and single unit on the rear. The fresh repaint on this AC4400CW looks mighty fine!
