Remarks & Notes 
Before directional running was established between Pueblo and Amarillo, BNSF's former BN Twin Peaks Sub handled most traffic between CO and TX. Before standard coal power was 2x2, coal trains were handled by a trio of MAC's. Here a southbound coal load was struggling toward the top of the Trinchere Pass grade near Branson, NM.
