Rocky Mountaineer power RMRX 8020 and 8021 looked right at home leading the Rocky Mountaineer "Rockies to the Red Rocks" 10-car train at Crescent, CO, 25 May 2022 - first run for these units on their passenger train.

Nice shots, maybe eventually one day we could see we could see a Canadian widecab geeps make that 4 units pulling a longer 20+ car Rocky Mountaineer on the Moffat and on the Hi Line/MRL in Montana like they do on the CP in Canada now that would be a sight to see maybe one day.

There's a review on Yahoo today, mostly favorable but like $1800-2300 for a 2 day trip is pretty
pricey. Coment on the train doing 35 mph was interesting along with several freight delays but
with the note that no one seemed to mind the delays. Low end included beer and wine, high
end an open bar. Includes one hotel night in Glenwood Springs.
