This train was tied up in Broomfield, CO all day yesterday. Saw it just before 8am when I went north and was quite surprised to see it still sitting there last night around 6:30pm when I went south. If the light had been a bit better I would have tried to snap some pictures. The power compliment was definitely on point!
