The Potash Local is a weekly job that runs from Grand Junction, CO to Potash, UT (about 15 miles southwest of Moab). The train only runs on Friday's and had clear blue skies on this day as the train passes just east of Thompson, UT.

Roger, I guess I must have thought that the Utah National Guard invaded Grand Junction and claimed it in the name of Utah! Thanks for catching the mistake. You are completely correct that I meant Grand Junction, CO (and have since corrected the error). Glad you like the site!!

First I would like to say your web sight is fantastic! One comment about the Potash Local--I don't believe it originated in Grand Junction, Utah. Maybe it should be Grand Junction, Colorado. If I'm wrong, let me know. I live in Montrose, CO just 60 miles south of Grand Junction and have driven along this line many times. Keep up the great work!
