Remarks & Notes 
A little over seven hours after leaving Denver with Rio Grande train 9, the Yampa Valley, PA-1 6003 points its nose into the setting sun at Craig on Colorado’s Western Slope. On March 5,1966, this is the end of the line; ahead lie some 300 mostly empty miles to Salt Lake City, the original goal of David Moffat’s Denver Northwestern & Pacific until money ran out and construction stopped in 1913. The 6003, with its baggage car, two dome-chair cars, and business car 96, belonging to the Intermountain Chapter of the NRHS, will overnight here and depart around 8 a.m. tomorrow morning for the journey back to Denver as Train 10. Rio Grande will drop the run in two years, and all six of the Grande’s big Alcos will be scrapped soon afterwards.
