UP will frequently run a few extra units on the head end of westbound coal empties. The last four of these units are likely DIC (Dead In Consist) as they will be used later as helpers for the journey back east. This train has no DPUs, which does indicate that the train is headed for Grand Junction and the North Fork rather than the Craig Branch. Due to a lack of space, Energy-bound trains have their DPUs already set for the trip west.
