Remarks & Notes 
Union Pacific's Cane Creek Subdivision is a modern day engineering marvel. The lower 10 miles of the 35 mile route are by far the most dramatic. This is where Morrison Knudsen Corp. brought the D&RGW rails down from the Green River Desert to the level of the Colorado River at Potash. In this image, the Friday only 'Potash Turn' departs the magnificent curved sandstone cut at milepost 31, at the south end of Bootlegger Canyon. A group of hikers (visible at right) stumbled upon the 12 car train hiking a public trail toward Corona & Bow Tie arches a few hundred yards beyond the tracks.
