Yesterday's Zephyr 6(Jan 4) lost over 4 hours between Colfax and Truckee. Still over 5 hours late between Helper and Grand Junction.

Thanks, loved the photos and videos. I be traveling westbound on the Zephyr January 25-27 Chicago to Emeryville. Hope to see lots of snow in Colorado and Sierra Nevadas in California.

Maybe the frozen switches explain why yesterday's No. 6 was 6 1/2 hours late leaving Glenwood Springs tonight. At this rate 6(4) wil not arrive Denver until after midnight! Here's hoping your trip continues more or less near the schedule.

We have a great crew. Most of the crew recognize me from previous trips from a couple of years ago. The server in the diner is awesome. I told the crew what I was doing with my dad and they are treating us like royalty.

Steve, if you are interested the Zephyr 6 departing EMY Jan 4 is finally arriving in Chicago about 8:40 PM Central Time or about 6 hours late.

Great Photos. I take this trip each Winter and never saw that much snow in Glenwood Springs. By the way, Glenwood Springs is a great place to stop over in warm weather months. I did that May 2015 and stayed at the Hotel Denver right across the street from the station. It's a great "walking" town.
Good luck on the rest of your journey. You are not near as late at the Jan 4 train. They were over 6 hours late departing Denver and really did not lose more time after Denver -- just could not make the time up.

Likely that Steve saw the equipment for the Winter Park Ski Express sitting in Denver Union Station this evening.
