A timeless image of a westbound train crossing over CO-72 at the mouth of Coal Creek Canyon. 40 years ago, this same shot was replicated many times with the Rio Grande Zephyr and other Rio Grande traffic. Today, the scene contains some eastern visitors. This coal train originated east of the Mississippi River in CSX land, and the CSX power has stayed with the train the entire way to Colorado.
