Denver & Rio Grande Western [Southern Pacific]
Minturn, Colorado
June 2, 1996

As is so often the case with the Denver & Rio Grande Western's Tennessee Pass line, here near Minturn, Colorado the tracks and Eagle River share a narrow right of way. It's not clear in this photo if those poles also host slide detector fences, but those rocks overhead could mean serious trouble.
