On a clear and temperate December morning, the sound of six UP units (five on the point and one tail end DPU) echoes off the mountains at Blue Mountain as the MNYGJ-10 approaches the east portal of Tunnel 1. Last Wednesday, the final MNYRO left North Yard, running across the Grande to Roper in Salt Lake City. The MNYRO usually carried a cut of cars for Grand Junction. With UP stopping the MNYRO (and MRONY), they have started an MNYGJ (and MGJNY) three times a week to move cars headed to or from Grand Junction. Note UP 1996 is second in the head end consist.
