On the main at Dell, the eastbound Rocky Mountaineer wraps along the Colorado River with a pair of UP SD70Ms on the point. Dell is one of two sidings on the Dotsero Cutoff between Dotsero and Bond. As is the case with most siding, it also has a house track, although it is a stub end house track, only accessible from the west. There have been rumors in the last year or so that UP has considered taking Dell out of service, spiking the switches, to reduce the amount of maintenance required on the former Rio Grande. So far, that has not happened.
