The West Local (formerly the Rocky Local) switches tank cars on Chem Spur at Mesa Oil. I've wanted to try to catch the local here for nearly ten years, so I was happy to finally get my day. Great power to boot.

Thanks guys! I too grew up on the Rio Grande, spending time chasing on the Moffat and the Joint Line with my dad. It would be better if these were unpatched, but I'm not complaining!

You are right Zach. I grew up with nothing but Rio Grande engines. This must be rare, two of them in the same consist.

Great shot Kevin (all your shots are great BTW) but this one, after such a long wait coupled with the motive power make it exceptional for you - and us viewers to boot.

Too bad those aren't Unpatched. That would be even better!! Good 'ol Grande paint! Long live it and it won't be forgotten!
