The eastbound Zephyr meets a westbound BNSF Denver-Provo which has had the unfortunately luck of being stuck in the siding for the last five hours. A track maintainer found a track issue around Coal Creek Canyon that required repairing before allowing a train to roll over it. It was fixed in time for the Zephyr, and now the manifest will finally get a green signal to head west. However, the train will only go as far as Pinecliff before taking the siding again for a recrew. The train spent so much time at Rocky, the crew only has another five hours to work. So a fresh crew will take the train to Grand Junction from Cliff.
