An empty UP coal train blasts out the west end of Rocky on its way west. The train has 143 cars and is nearly 8,000 feet long. The original symbol had the train headed for the Antelope Mine in Wyoming, but the termination point was changed to Provo, UT. The reason? Not entirely sure. Perhaps the train will load at the Savage load out near Price? Perhaps the cars are going in to storage? Only UP knows for sure...
