Remarks & Notes 
Due to a derailment on the UP Overland Route in Wyoming, Amtrak received permission to detour eastbound train #6, the San Francisco Zephyr, via the Rio Grande between Salt Lake City and Denver. During a quick servicing stop at Helper, crews work to add water to Amtrak SDP40F 624. The Helper Fire Department has called Fire Engine No. 2 to assist with the endeavor. While this photo doesn't really say 'Rio Grande' in any way, it's one of my favorite shots taken within this hardy little railroad town.
