If you look, you are likely to find shots taken from this same basic perspective over the years. 30 years ago, you'd probably see a pair of Rio Grande GP30s sitting along the tracks outside the yard office. And, of course, the UP shield would not have been there, but "Rio Grande" in fly letters would have been, along the top of the tower.

Still worth noting in the comments here, Jim! I don't think you can over-inform when it comes to former Rio Grande power...

Ah, but I see that you already noted that under a different photo. Shoulda known you would not have missed that connection!

Well, if I am reading that number right, the trailing unit-- No. 1359-- is the former D&RGW No. 3118. So the Grande lives, albeit in disguise...
