The California Zephyr (particularly Amtrak 6) was frequently running VERY late in late July and early August of 2006. On the night of August 4, Amtrak was schedule to arrive in Denver at 7pm. Well, I went out west to Plain to get some night shots when I heard that it wasn't due into the station until 2am! The train ended up getting its crew changed at the crossing at Plain right around 2am. Shortly after the crew change, Amtrak passed my camera as it entered Tunnel one. Is the same exposure, you can see Amtrak round the curve into Clay on the left side of the shot.
