Running nearly 20 hours late, the eastbound Zephyr makes a very rare mid-afternoon run past milepost 13 down the main at Leyden. Mother Nature is to blame for the extreme tardiness. Snow over Donner Pass and flooding in Nevada have caused UP's tracks to be closed a lot with piled up snow or washouts. The Zephyr terminated at Salt Lake (and turned around there for a return trip east) for 10 days or so recently. Seems like perhaps they should still be doing that!
