In the 1998-1999 season, the Ski Train stopped using leased power from Union Pacific (and the power car), and started using leased F40PH's from Amtrak. Two F40's were used during this first season, which turned out to be a disaster when one of the units went down. On one trip, the train couldn't make it up the hill! Here, the two leased F40's can be seen on the point of the train as the train backs into the wye at Tabernash.
