After spending about three hours switching in the yard in Glenwood Springs, UP's Minturn Local is now headed east toward Tennessee Pass. Now that statement sounds far more exciting that it actually is. While most of Tennessee Pass is "railbanked" and out of service, about seven miles of the west end is still active. The stretch between Dotsero and Gypsum is still active, which is to say it sees one train a week: The Minturn Local. American Gypsum is a wallboard manufacturer located in Gypsum and they ship by rail. A (far less common than its AC brothers) C44-9W leads the local on the main at Grizzly.
