The process Amtrak must go through to make its station stop in Denver is rather involved. Multiple tracks and dispatchers are involved. Union Station has "stub tracks", meaning there is only an exit in one direction. Consequently, the Zephyr must back in to the station. Here, the morning Zephyr is backing down the Buck Lead by BNSF's engine facility, underneath Park West Avenue. Note Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, in front of the Denver skyline.
