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

Located about halfway between Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction, Colorado, Rulison is one of the many spots along the Denver & Rio Grande Western's mainline where trains can be conveniently photographed. Here Amtrak's eastbound California Zephyr approaches. Another headlight is visible in the distance, probably pulling out of a siding after letting the Zephyr pass.
