Two SD70MACs server as the tail-end DPU on this southbound BNSF coal load. Perhaps the most famous of Colorado's numerous 14,000-foot mountain peaks, Pikes Peak stands in the distance. The highway to the left is I-25.

This shot of the southbound coal train is interesting as the train appears to be headed to a geographic barrier that looks hard to penetrate.  
 
I own land to the east of I-25 opposite between Greenland and Spruce and hope to be building out there in the next year or two depending on the economy.  
 
When I'm out there I patrol the joint line trying new angles for shots, while I've done this shot a number of times you have captured the feel for the trip ahead for this loaded train.
