With 14,197-foot Mount Princeton towering in the background, Rio Grande GP40 No. 3075 and Cotton Belt GP40-2 No. 7291 power a five-car local of zinc concentrate between Brown Cañon siding and Salida, Colorado, on January 9, 1998. For a year-and-a-half after Union Pacific closed Colorado’s Tennessee Pass as a through route on August 23, 1997, it still operated a one-a-week local from Pueblo to Malta, near Leadville, on a round trip that took two days. Looks like they are losing some of the zinc ore out of the three gons without covers on this somewhat faster section of track approaching Salida.
