1981: Back to Cheyenne
Author: bandob

We had another summer vacation to Cheyenne fro Frontier Days in July 1981. Two years after our first visit in 1979, Amtrak now was stopping at "Boring Borie." Actually, they re-located to Borie in October 1979.

UP power was still often on the point, but no longer E units.

UP Business cars would still appear in Cheyenne for the Frontier Days week.

UP 9001 was in the Cheyenne Depot after bringing in a special train for the week's events.

Watching a departure at Borie.

The concrete pad is still at Borie. There's something of the ashpalt road leading to it, there's the metal posts that held the sign as well. Other than that not much recognizable remains.

The GP-40X's and the SD40-2H's did have the high speed trucks so made good support power for Amtrak.
