After arriving in Denver an hour late, the Amtrak crews worked fast and got the Zephyr out of town only 15 minutes late. Here, the train is knocking down a clear signal at the east end of Leyden on its journey west. The signal here at east Leyden is one of only three sets of signals between Utah Junction and East Portal that have not been replaced by UP yet. The other two being Utah Junction itself (on the signal bridge) and the intermediates at Kipling. The intermediate's days are numbered too as a new signal is already in place once the new two main track project is completed.
