With the elimination of Kremmling as a crew change point for BNSF, Grand Junction-based crews now run trains the entire stretch between Grand Junction and Denver (and vice versa). At least, they run them as close as they can get them! The crew on the manifest (with a pair of borrowed CN units) went on duty at 7:30am. Being that it is now 6:20pm, that gives them 70 minutes to make it to the yard. They probably could have made it, except that a traffic jam (which included Amtrak) at Utah Jct blocked all routes for the train. The crew is going to tie it down here and head for the hotel. A Denver-based crew will come and get the train later and take it the remaining 12 miles to the yard.
