Union Pacific Railroad coal train at Walden, CO

Union Pacific Railroad coal train at Walden, CO

We are going to take a little side trip on a branch line out of Laramie that was rarely photographed. I am in Walden, CO and the date is June 18, 1979. The weather turned cold and cloudy. I am trying to take pictures between breaks in the clouds. Engines 3506 and 3569 are about ready to head to Laramie with a short coal train.
