Remarks & Notes 
Today, Colorados Minturn yard sits empty, rusty and forlorn. No longer do crews cut in helpers for the arduous climb up the steep 3 percent grades of Tennessee Pass. The sand tower is now gone and weeds grow between the rails that once ushered interstate commerce. Even Railroad Avenue grade crossing seen in the foreground is now paved right over the main line, siding and other yard tracks. In the center background, the sturdy brick depot and old single-stall enginehouse still stand as a reminder of what once was. Unfortunately, this is what Minturn yard looks like on the morning of June 4, 2018.
