The eastbound Zephyr makes a somewhat sharp right turn into the siding at Tabernash. The main and the siding are on very different alignments. This was originally done as steam engines were once based in Tabernash as a means of helping heaving eastbound up the grade to the Moffat Tunnel. Here, Amtrak skirts the mountain and some standing water at the west switch.
