Amtrak’s westbound California Zephyr is led by Rio Grande EMD GP40 No. 3079 at the station stop of Grand Junction, Colorado, on February 25, 1988. Because of the long length of the Zephyr in this era, Rio Grande frequently added an EMD GP40/GP40-2 locomotive to expedite the train over the railroad. Also on this particular day, on the rear of the train is an additional car, business car No. 100, the “Kansas,” freshly-renamed from “Wilson McCarthy” in 1987.
