Are those loaded hoppers or are they moved to Antonito for storage?

Most likely they're empties for perlite loading in Antonito.

Out

Hoppers are for the Pearlite business.(hope I spelled that right).

Let hope these are not the last 22 empties placed in Perlite for loading. Has anyone seen these cars moving east  as loads?  They will take some good motive power to get them over La Veta Pass and to the UP interchange.

is that E-unit still powered by dual 567's?  Or has it been repowered? When are trains running on the SLRG - I assume no set schedule?
