D&RGW #5390W enters Roper Yd. in SLC, UT- 1977
Author: the_expediter

Taken with my 35mm Exakta VX (Thagee Dresden) w/ monster 400mm lens...That lens weighted more than I did back in those days...I just lifted the Exakta with its 75mm portrait lens and it must weigh at least twice as much as my new Canon T3i Rebel!- Steve in cloudy Grossmont, CA

Steve, I'm trying to place the location in relation to the (now gone) Murray smokestack in the background. I wonder if the train's going north on the tracks that were east of I-15 (Now used by UTA, I believe...)

I really admire the Roadmaster, not a low joint to be seen!

Nope, it's going down the original roadbed to this very day. UTA Frontrunner line is to the left of this shot, or east.
