This Jordan Spreader has a long history with Colorado and Grande tracks. It is DRGW AX-41, and Rio Grande kept it stationed at Minturn back in the day. It would help keep snow clear of the tracks over Tennessee Pass. After Tennessee Pass closed, it spent a lot of time in the North Yard storage yard. It was used in 2003 when the Moffat got 80+ inches of snow. It was used again in Kansas on the KP at the end of 2006 and start of 2007. It then went back to the storage yard and sat. Finally, 13 years later, it looks like it might get some use again! UP is taking it west to Fraser as there has been a lot of snow up there this winter.
