These SD9043MACs are wearing the paint scheme of the San Luis and Rio Grande. This is a short line that operates over La Veta Pass between Walsenburg, Alamosa and Antonito. The short line was hoping to revive the Ski Train in a trial run for one season in 2010 to see they can turn a profit. The train was to be run as the Rio Grande Scenic Ski Train and this was to be the power. However, negotiations with Amtrak fell through at the last moment and the train didn't come together. Rumor is they will try again in 2011.
