YouTuber Jeb Brooks posted yesterday on their trip from Denver to Moab. It was so leisurely that they didn't make it to Glenwood Springs for dinner and a swim in the hot springs. Otherwise a very a good video.

So is the answer "no" I guess that UP is not keeping the Rocky Mountaineer on time? I am also a bit curious as to how the OTP is going for the Rocky Mountaineer as it does have a bit of a tight turn around on day TWO as it heads west to Moab and then has to turn BACK the same day.........

Also, how has the patronage been? This is year 2 of the RMR operation in the States for this route. They usually give it three years to see if a route will make it. I would hope that this route would......I would think this could open the door for other routes for RMR in the States if things pan out. A hub so to speak from Denver or even Salt Lake City.........

From Jeb Brooks video, train was supposed to arrive Glenwood Springs 5-6, they arrived at 7:30. Had to wait in the hole for the Zephyr as well as all the freight traffic. Train looked maybe half full? Kinda depended on his shots
