UP 6071 - Moffat Subdivision - Rocky Mountains - Winter Park

UP 6071 climbs the grade at Winter Park on UP's Moffat Subdivision.
UP 6071 at Winter Park, CO
Union Pacific 6071 leads a loaded coal train east on UP's Moffat Subdivision, near Timberhouse Road in Winter Park, Colorado. This heavy coal train could be heard climbing the grade for miles, as it made its way toward the Moffat Tunnel, from the west. At this point, the train was about half a mile away from the west portal of the tunnel. From here the train will continue on toward the Denver, Colorado area, however, its final destination is unknown to me.

  1. Beautiful with the mountain backdrop. I was at Moffat Tunnel a few years ago. Neat area.

    1. Thanks, Shelly. A friend and I stopped off in Winter Park for the night after driving through Rocky Mountain National Park. I wish we'd had more time to spend in the Winter Park area.
