A Black Mesa & Lake Powell train rolls west with a coal train in the late afternoon with several E60's and E60C's on the front. This isolated 78 mile railroad is situated in northern Arizona for the purpose of hauling coal from a mine to a power plant.
Stopping for a crew change across the Colorado River in Yuma, AZ, the engineer of this train managed to line up these couplers with a rocky outcropping and the bell tower of St Thomas Mission church in Winterhaven, CA.
The one-eyed sentinel at MP 7607 on UP's ex-SP Sunset Route stares blankly around a curve, waiting for a westbound to protect on the right-hand track. There won't be any this afternoon as everything's running on the left set of rails.
