Remarks & Notes 
America’s sweetheart streamliner, the D&RGW’s Rio Grande Zephyr Train 17 glides along the Colorado River near Dell on May 16, 1970 just two weeks after the advent of Amtrak when D&RGW elected not to join. The former D&RGW and today’s Amtrak California Zephyr Trains 5 and 6 follow the Colorado River for 238 miles, the longest stretch any railroad follows the same river in the USA.
