Looking toward the westbound signals at West Sage, we see the siding diverge from the main track. It is interesting to note that Sage has not spent the entire past 20 years seeing zero traffic. On more than once occasion, UP has used Sage for temporary storage of cars (typically hoppers). Sage is located just seven (or so) miles from the "active" part of the west end of Tennessee Pass. The Minturn Local, out of Grand Junction, still makes weekly trips to the American Gypsum drywall plant in Gypsum, which is just over six miles east of Dotsero.
