Denver Rails -The Railroads of Denver and the West

DENVER RAILS HOME   PHOTOS MAIN PAGE   BACK TO COLORADO IMAGES
   Just east of Limon is the town of Genoa on the old Rock Island line. I happened to catch a unique sight coming home Saturday after Thanksgiving. Three UP AC's lead a pipe unit train on the KYLE tracks!!! I often wondered how much traffic the line sees nowadays and was thrilled to see this.
I was heading west approaching Genoa when I saw lights on the rails up a head. The glare of the sun made it hard to see any details but I could tell the engines were shiny new. As they pulled into view I began to make out the eagle on the front and wondered what I was seeing.
Sure enough, three clean UP engines were leading a pipe train east on the KYLE.
How often does this happen? I was glad to see UP would run on the KYLE and glad to be here to catch a shot of it. This is looking east along I-70 about 1/2 mile east of Genoa.
