There are parts of the country (outside of the Northeast Corridor) in which multiple Amtrak trains run on the same tracks daily. One such example being the Silver Star and Silver Meteor in Florida. While this is a special running of the Ski Train, it could pass as just another Amtrak train. So I thought it would be fun to capture both this train and the California Zephyr from the same perspective (on the same evening). The Zephyr passed here about 40 minutes earlier on its journey in to town. Incidentally, the power on the Ski Train is reversed from the morning, with AMTK 42 trailing. This is because the wye at Tabernash is out of service. The power had to run around the train at Fraser, placing AMTK 187 on the point.
