The morning Zephyr rolls west on the main at Rocky, passing by some maintenance equipment tied down in the house track. Some individual strips of rail lay on the ground. If you happen to be new to trains, this shot illustrates one way you can (in general) identify which track is the main line. If you look on the right two tracks, you can see angle bars...steel bars used to connect to pieces of track. The track Amtrak is on is welded rail, so each piece of track is 1/4 of a mile long! Consequently, you really do not see any angle bars.
