Rio Grande at Castle Gate, UT

  • Photo Contests
When I lived in Colorado I made a number of trips out to Utah to catch the last of the Rio Grande SD40T-2s in helper service. On May 5, 2000, the then daily MDVRO westbound manifest was a rather heavy train that required five units mid-train to make it over Soldier Summit.
