After returning to Denver due to a major rock slide on the Moffat, the westbound Zephyr is going to be turned into the eastbound Zephyr. The spare P42 is taken out of the stub track and added to the front of the train. On the west side of the divide, the eastbound Zephyr was wyed at Tabernash and turned into the westbound Zephyr. Passengers from that train were bussed to Denver and placed on this train to continue east to Chicago. Likewise, passengers from this train were bussed to Fraser and placed on the new westbound Zephyr. When all was said and done, #5 was 10 hours late heading west and #6 was just under 3 hours late heading east.
