Remarks & Notes 
Aftermath after Amtrak Train 6, "California Zephyr" struck a rock slide in Fraser Canyon between Granby and Tabernash, Colo., and slid down into Fraser River, apparently before that section of track had a detector warning fence. There were no serious injuries and passengers were taken back to Granby on motor cars and hi-rail vehicles. F40's 246 and 301, two Superliner coaches and a baggage car, wait on a Denver Union Terminal track for Amtrak disposition on April 27, 1985. F40 301 was rebuilt and 246 wasn't.

Anything that grabs one's attention and holds it. These photos tell more than a story based on the sum of its parts, but create other stories.
