Remarks & Notes 
After the Rio Grande ultimately joined Amtrak in 1983, its three famous F units served the winter of 1984 on the Ski Train. Afterwards, they spent their final days in ballast work train service as they were doing on June 4, 1984 at Tunnel 17 near Crescent, Colo. Two of the units reside today at the Colorado Railroad Museum.
