Remarks & Notes 
Denver Post "Frontier Days" special is leaving the Mile High City enroute Cheyenne. This marks the 100th anniversary of the "Frontier Days" train on UP, hence the centennial 6936 being used as diesel help. Despite the "100th anniversary", the train ran as a private excursion with few exceptions from 1908 until 1970, then after an absence it became a public event in 1992. This year's train is being taped for History Channel's "Extreme Trains".
