This bridge at the base of Coal Creek Canyon sported Rio Grande lettering (in fly letter, of course) until a derailment here on December 10, 2009 resulted in the lettering being pained over. Regardless, the Phase III Heritage Unit looks mighty fine crossing over the bridge. In my humble opinion, I would like to see Amtrak adopt this scheme for its entire fleet.
