Here is something you don't see every day! P42DC #67 is actually pulling Amtrak backwards through Arvada eastbound toward Denver. A rock slide in the Tunnel District made this necessary. The conductor stood in the back of the P42 and spotted the reverse movement for the engineer.

Now, that's just about the weirdest thing ever... Glad you caught it on camera!
