Another sad sight during the day long tour of Tennessee Pass. The yard at Salida was once a key component in the Rio Grande system. For years, the yard had dual gauge rails (both standard and narrow gauge) and interchanged traffic from several sources. The narrow gauge line over Marshall Pass (original mainline for the Rio Grande prior to the completion of Tennessee Pass), traffic from the Monarch Branch, and standard gauge traffic along Tennessee Pass all came through here. Today, 18 years after the last of the trains came through, the yard consists of a single track alongside the 7,240 foot siding and the mainline.
