Unit Coal Train — BNSF 9272

In desperate need of a wash, BNSF 9272 (an EMD SD70ACe) leads BNSF 5839 (a GE AC4400CW) into the curve at Palmer Lake, Colorado in early March 2018. Trailed out behind the two brilliant orange locomotives was a load of coal.

You can get a sense of how banked the curve at Palmer Lake is as the lead locomotives begin the descent toward Monument and Colorado Springs:
