The westbound Zephyr has come to a stop in the siding at Platteville while waiting for the eastbound Zephyr. Amtrak has run regularly on the Greeley Sub at varying points in history. The San Francisco Zephyr ran here from 1971 to 1983 until Rio Grande stopped the Rio Grande Zephyr. Then, the California Zephyr started again and Amtrak left the (now) Greeley Sub. However, it returned in 1991 when Amtrak's Pioneer terminus was changed from Salt Lake City to Denver. Another change came two years later in 1993 when the Pioneer was reduced to a thrice-weekly train. Then, in 1997, the Pioneer was eliminated entirely, ending regular Amtrak train on the Greeley Sub.
