After many years of losing trains from the Moffat (The American Orient Express, the Anschutz Ski Train, the Circus Train, nearly Amtrak due to COVID, etc), it is really great to see a passenger train added to the Moffat this year! The Rocky Mountaineer's Rockies to the Red Rocks is a deluxe train that makes two weekly round trips between Denver, CO and Moab, UT. Here, the train is climbing up the grade from Coal Creek toward Tunnel 1. Rumor has it that two of the Mountaineer GP40-2L units will receive PTC prior to the start of the train running in April 2022.
