So much in this shot has changed over the years and so much has stayed the same. The track configuration and rolling stock sitting in the yard hasn't changed much. The type of power and color scheme has changed dramatically! 30 years ago, this was the main yard for the Rio Grande and there was a sea of Black and Aspen Gold here. 20 years ago, Scarlet Gray had moved in. Today, Armour Yellow dominates as North Yard is now just a small, local yard on Union Pacific's vast system.
