It is just a few minutes before the sun crests the horizon on a frigid New Year's Eve as an eastbound BNSF manifest approaches Tennyson Street on Main 1. Behind the train and to the right of the frame, you can see a lot of infrastructure for the new RTD Gold Line commuter line, set to open in Fall of 2016. An interesting note is that this is the very last eastbound BNSF train that won't be crewed by a Grand Junction based crew. Starting January 1, 2016, BNSF eliminated the crew change point in Kremmling. Grand Junction crews now take BNSF trains from Grand Junction as far east as they can. It is actually probable that a BNSF train at this location will have a Denver based crew as a Grand Junction crew likely won't be able to reach Denver. So a Denver crew will "dog catch" the train somewhere west of town.
