For the first time in over 10 years, the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus train ran over the Rio Grande between Denver and Salt Lake City. It last ran this way in 2005, before being routed over the Overland. However, the retirement of the elephants from the show last year apparently alleviated concerns over running through the Moffat Tunnel. As a result, we have this picture here! The Circus Train knocks down a clear signal at the east end of Leyden.
