It can be crazy just how quickly the weather can change! Less than an hour earlier, this scene would have been bathed in bright sunlight with few clouds visible. Now, dark clouds have moved in as a loaded coal train (which loaded at the West Elk Mine on the North Fork Branch) approaches a clear signal at Leyden. The lead unit was once SP 246 until getting patched in June 2004 and a full repainted a few years later.
