Denver & Rio Grande Western [Southern Pacific]
June 7, 1996
Another view from Pueblo's Lincoln Avenue (Colorado State Highway 96) bridge, as a Denver & Rio Grande Western freight heads west to the Tennessee Pass line. Santa Fe ownership of the parallel yard in the background is evident from the blue and yellow units scattered about. Althought the Burlington Northern power is there under trackage rights dating back to the Colorado & Southern, in another year the Burlington Northern Santa Fe merger will render the issue moot.
