At last! With this picture, I finally have a shot of all four Heritage Units leading the California Zephyr. As far as I'm concerned, I saved the best for last. The Phase III scheme has always been my favorite. The Zephyr charges west out of Leyden.

Clovis-  
 
Amtrak has done a pretty descent job "spreading the wealth" around. Each of the four heritage units have now made at least one appearance on the Zephyr.  
 
On average, it seems that one comes through Colorado maybe once every six weeks or so...

Do the Zephyrs routinely include a heritage unit or is it luck of the draw to see one?
