Remarks & Notes 
The Denver & Rio Grande Western attempted to discontinue service of its Rio Grande Zephyr passenger trains between Grand Junction and Salt Lake City many times. One of the 'close calls' happened in the spring of 1979 when they attempted to drop Utah from the schedule west of Denver. Thankfully, it didn't happen this time, but it did drum up interest in riding the train! Passengers with tickets in hand await boarding as train No. 18 slows to a stop at Provo on April 13, 1979. Yes, there's a dirty tunnel motor on the point, the only time I witnessed an SD40T-2 lead the RGZ.
