A similar scene was repeated for many, many years on the Rio Grande. UP E-Units crossing over Highway 72 at the base of Coal Creek Canyon bring back memories of Rio Grande F-Units leading freight (in the 50's and 60's) and then passenger trains (until 1983) over this same track. Here, an OLS Special is climbing toward Tunnel One. This is only the second time UP's E-Units have visited the former Rio Grande through the Rockies (not around them).

Kevin, I think the photos of the returning Life Safer Special with the Union Pacific E Units are just terrific. It's great to have good photo history of their trip through the Rockies. Thanks.
