Remarks & Notes 
They say the weather in Colorado can change within five minutes, and that is absolutely true. While chasing the "Demos" up the hill, gaining almost 3,500 - 4,000ft in elevation, it was a mixture of low hanging clouds to sunny skies. At Tolland, it was sunny with blue sky. However, at East Portal, less than a mile away, the weather changed... Seen here, the test train slowly rolls into "blizzard" conditions as they roll along through the siding at East Portal, Colorado where they'll let the Moffat Tunnel vent out and meet Amtrak 6 on March 07, 2016.
