Say so long to the western slope of the Continental Divide! The MRONY is about to duck into the west portal of the Moffat Tunnel at the base of Winter Park. This is almost the exact spot the Ski Train used to stop to pick up passengers....

There sure is a lot of cracking on the West Portal concrete. I'm assuming it recently rained and that those cracks are not nearly as big as they look.

You are absolutely correct Max! From what I've heard, the car is being shipped to Chicago. I'm not sure for whom, or what's its fate will be!

Speaking of passenger cars, I see a bilevel commuter about 14 cars back, by the first set of pines.
