Calif. Zephyr Back to Running Through Colorado

August 21, 2020

The California Zephyr resumed on Tuesday operating between Denver and Salt Lake City.

Nos. 5 and 6 had been either detoured or canceled between the two cities over the past week due to wild fires that affected Glenwood Canyon in Colorado.

Union Pacific spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza told reporters that the first freight train to travel through the canyon did so on Monday but was limited to 5 mph.

The Zephyr detoured via UP lines across Wyoming on some days but on other days the train was canceled and no alternative service was provided to the missed stations between Denver and Salt Lake City.
