Legend of the Rio Grande Zephyr

For one brief moment in railroad history there was a wonderful little tri-weekly passenger train that operated over the D&RGW between Denver, Colorado and Salt Lake City, Utah. It was the "Rio Grande Zephyr"...and it would become a Legend.

April 24, 1983 is an important and sad day in history ... and you are there as F-9 #5771 arrives with the "Zephyr" at Denver Union Station for the last time. Then step back in time as rail photographer William E. Botkin documents the life and times of this great train as it climbs the Rockies and crosses the Utah desert to Salt Lake City. There are also views on board the 1948 era stainless steel passenger cars. The "Rio Grande Zephyr" is gone now but its memory lives on in this action-oriented program.
Snow Train: Rio Grande's Ski Special

The UNION PACIFIC still operates the Ski Train made famous by its predecessor, the DENVER & RIO GRANDE WESTERN. The train serves the Winter Park Ski Resort on weekends from Denver during the winter months and is a delight to both skiers and railfans.

This program returns to 1984 when vintage 1915 era coaches were pulled by the famous F units from the discontinued "Rio Grande Zephyr". Experience this unique train from on board and many spectacular track side locations as it glides through a snow covered Winter Wonderland.
