Rolling west on the main at Yarmony, passengers on the Zephyr likely are enjoying the colorful shrubs along the banks of the Colorado River. The siding of Yarmony has changed a lot in the last two decades. It used to be one of the shortest sidings between Denver and Bond. A derailment in the early 2000s took out the west switch of the siding. And UP left the west switch out of service for years afterward, until finally extending the siding to the west and moving the east switch to the west as well. The result is now one of the longer siding with concrete ties throughout.
