The Eastbound Zephyr just left Dotsero and is now on the Dotsero Cutoff. The cutoff was started in 1932 and was completed in 1934. The cutoff, running nearly 40 miles, connected the mainline of the Denver and Salt Lake at Bond, CO to the mainline of the Denver and Rio Grande Western at Dotsero, CO. By the 1930s, the D&RGW controlled the D&SL, so the cutoff created a far more direct route between Denver and Salt Lake City.
