Remarks & Notes 
Severed—forever?
In early March 2014, a 30-foot boulder came crashing down the mountainside above Minturn, slamming onto the Tennessee Pass main line below while breaking in two and destroying part of the siding too, stopping short of the Eagle river and homes just the other side of it. The giant boulder now nicely embedded into the former Rio Grande right-of-way was once a good portion of a local landmark called Lionshead Rock that has stood above the Colorado mountain town for countless years. The main line is in the foreground in this view, and these boulders can easily be seen on Google Maps—this photo is from June 4, 2018.
