A huge crane could be found at Burnham, used for any number of types of heaving lifting once done here. In the Rio Grande days, Burnham was the main maintenance facility for the railroad for both engines and rolling stock. Now, 28 years after the end of Rio Grande, its maintenance facility is in the process of being torn down. Major maintenance for UP will now be done in Little Rock, AR, or North Platte, NE.
