Denver & Rio Grande Western [Union Pacific]
Range, Colorado (Dotsero Cutoff)
October 4, 1997

Range, Colorado is a brief widening of the Colorado River canyon, and contains one of the few pieces of long tangent track on the Dotsero Cutoff. This train is eastbound, headed towards Bond and the Moffat Tunnel. The Union Pacific unit on the lead is a telltale sign of the Rio Grande/Southern Pacific's acquisition by Union Pacific in September 1997.
