BN Coal MKT 635 622 624 623 608 Palmer Lake CO

Now cresting the hill at milepost 52.5, Palmer Lake, CO, southbound coal load with MKT SD40-2's 635, 622, 624, 623 and 608 leading will soon back off the throttle and let gravity take over for the downhill run to Pueblo. November 17, 1985

 

In six years of photography in the Denver region before the Katy merged with the Union Pacific in 1988, this was the only time I witnessed a solid consist of five MKT units in Colorado on a coal train or any other train for that matter.
