BNSF 5497 and BNSF 5165 south lead an empty unit Sulphur Train (GBNVGAT) through the Restricted Limits Clear Creek just north of Utah Junction. The red castle in the background was home to Westminster University starting in 1908 (it was striving to be the "Princeton of the West"). However, World War I shut the school down a mere nine years later in 1917. The city of Harris, CO changed its name to Westminster in honor of the university. Today, the castle is home to a private Christian school (K-12).
