In the late 1990's, the Ski Train (owned by Phil Anschutz) wanted their own power so they no longer had to lease power from Union Pacific. In the 1997-1998 winter season, they leased two F40PHs from Amtrak to test them out. There were some power issues which made them realize they would need at least three units. Here, two Amtrak F40PHs sit on the Ski Train in the siding at Fraser. These would not end up being the units the Ski Train would eventually acquire.
