Back when the Rock Island was still in existance, the railroad had trackage rights on the UP from Limon, CO to Sandown Junction, just east of Denver. From there, The Rock would takes its own tracks to the Belt Line to interchange with the Rio Grande in North Yard. Today, all that remains of Sandown Junction is this sign just east of Ulster Street along the KP main. However, it is rumored that the line from the Belt to Sandown will rise again to carry coal traffic!
