Grade crossing damage causing a headache! The grade crossing at Blue Mountain had some pretty serious damage done (although how, I'm not sure). The big problem was the piece of steel sticking about three inches up into the air. Not a big problem for westbounds, but there was a concern that eastbounds could catch the metal.

Riding east of Denver in the bottom of an Amtrak family sleeper at 50-70 mph, the noise from wheels striking switch frogs and the disturbing sound of debris deflecting off the other side of the wall all makes a lot of sense now.
