Denver & Rio Grande Western [Southern Pacific]
Ogden, Utah
September 2, 1996

The Denver & Rio Grande Western had its own line from Salt Lake City to Ogden where it connected with the Southern Pacific's line across the Great Salt Lake to Sacramento and Oakland. By 1996 this line was out of service, here seen at the Ogden intersection of Utah Highways 126 and 108. In just 9 days the Union Pacific takeover of Rio Grande/Southern Pacific will render this line permanently redundant.
