Remarks & Notes 
'Route of the Streamliners' via the 'Mainline through the Rockies'. 17 of Union Pacific's finest hold-outs from the 'Streamliner' era are surrounded by the Pagodas Canyon's ruby red cliffs on the former D&RGW Dotsero cut-off. The special train is making a round trip run between Denver-Dotsero-Denver and is now returning eastbound having just highballed Dotsero, CO a few minutes previous. Today the breathe-taking scenery found on the former Rio Grande in Colorado (and Utah), including this narrow passage in the mountains which the Colorado River and railroad share space, can still be viewed daily from onboard the California Zephyr….albeit Amtrak's California Zephyr.
