A variety of factors has caused the Westbound Zephyr to be anywhere from 2-5 hours late the last week or so. This particular Zephyr departed Chicago about an hour late as it had to pick up Superliners for the Winter Park Express (the new Ski Train). It also ended up having an SD70MAC added in the midwest. With a top speed of 70 MPH, that also slowed the train down a bit. Then, the SD70MAC was removed in Denver, along with the Superliners. All told, the train is running about 3 1/2 hours late in this shot near the east end of Barbara's Gulch.
