Denver & Rio Grande Western [Southern Pacific]
Colorado (Gore Canyon)
June 11, 1996

The eastbound coal train, much closer now, might still be a tiny Z-scale model from this height. By this time little Denver & Rio Grande Western had acquired the much larger Southern Pacific, and chose to retain the larger road's name due to its higher recognition value (a disputable proposition, but there you are).
