D&RGW Zephyr at Rio
Author: oyw

There have probably been hundreds of pictures of the Rio Grande Zephyr posted here on Trainorders, so here’s one more to add to the collection. The 5771 leads eastbound train #18 through Rio, Utah (3 ½ miles east of Thistle) on Friday morning October 15, 1982. Over 36 years ago, a couple of friends and I decided we needed to make the journey to Utah for the Zephyr and, in my opinion, it’s still one of the smartest things we ever did.
