At this point, I'd have to say that Utah Railway is my favorite short line railroad out there. It reminds me of Rio Grande and the cool operating agreement the two railroads had (and Utah Railway and UP continue to have) over Soldier Summit. So, on rare occasion, when a Utah engine makes its way to Colorado, it is always good to see. Unfortunately, when this GP40 returns to Utah, it will most likely be wearing the orange paint scheme of the Genesee and Wyoming. Genesee and Wyoming (which owns over a dozen short line railroads in the US) has owned Utah Railway since 2002.
