Remarks & Notes 
With a low throated chug, two relatively new AC4400CW units ease their coal train into Plain, CO for a meet with westbound empties. The days of SP as an independent carrier and of the former D&RGW as a busy competitor to the UP's Overland Route were about gone.

Coal and steel don't go bad. This album features long, slow, heavy freight trains; drag freights, slop freights, dead freights, etc. Trains with lots of power, and lots of different cargo slogging along behind.
