After arriving on the MRONY the day before, UP 1996 is headed back west as the sole DPU on the tail end of the MNYRO. The train got stuck in the siding at Plain for awhile. An eastbound BNSF manifest came by on the main and met Amtrak at Eisele (formerly Clay). DS-82 held the MNYRO in the siding at Plain to allow the Zephyr to pass by on the main. That is exactly what is happening here as the Zephyr heads west.

Been there done that. What a thrill to revisit our rides on trains 5 and 6.
