Remarks & Notes 
As we pulled into Winter Park the conductor announced that it was 3 degrees with 80 MPH winds. Still, the trian was crowded, having gained popularity under Ansco Investments. The three F40PHs are former Amtrak units. The coaches are ex Canadian National 1968-vintage Hawker-Siddeley Tempo cars (along with a couple Budd streamliners). Able to carry 750 passengers, it has the largest capacity of any scheduled passenger train in the U.S.

The Winter Park Ski Train has taken generations of Denverites to the slopes. Started by the Rio Grande and now operated by Amtrak, it's the best way to get there.
