On a beautiful January morning, the California Zephyr approaches Pecos Crossover on Main 3. In mid-2018, Amtrak executives had said that no long distance Amtrak trains would run over any stretch of track that did not have Positive Train Control (PTC) implemented. Fortunately, they backed down on that as several train, including the Zephyr, would have been impacted. The former Grande between Grand Junction and Helper does not have PTC (and UP currently has no plans to add it).
