Remarks & Notes 
The Deseret Power Ry.’s afternoon loaded train is rolling downgrade over Moffat County Road #134, also known as the Blue Mountain Road. This type of a culvert overpass is common on this railroad; there are 5 of them. The train has just topped out at Holum Pass a couple of miles east of this point and now the train is headed directly west into the setting sun. From here to Mormon Gap, near the Colorado/Utah state line, the terrain is pretty much a rolling sagebrush plain that skirts some sandstone topped mesas. This overpass is one of only 5 spots where the railroad passes either above or below a paved road in the entire 35 miles of its route. Today’s train is the usual 44 cars of high volatile, C bituminous coal destined for the Bonanza Power plant in Utah.
