Many mainlines in the country have a lot of industries along the line that are serviced by local freights. Alas, the Moffat is not one of those mainlines. In fact, the only remaining industry served by a local between Denver and Bond is the Arcosa Lightweight aggregate plant. It is located at the far north end of the Rocky Flat Industrial Lead, about four miles north of Rocky. Here is an overview of the plant and almost two dozen covered hoppers at the plant. A pair of GP40-2s just dropped off three more covered hoppers for the plant.
