An east bound Southern Pacific coal train glides above the Arkansas River west of Texas Creek, Colorado in September 1996. This location is on the ex-Denver & Rio Grande Western’s Tennessee Pass line west of Pueblo. A pair of GE AC44CWs are on the head of the 100+ car train. In 1988 Southern Pacific acquired the D&RGW, in 1996, Union Pacific bought the Southern Pacific. After the purchase UP decided to close the Tennessee pass line, the last revenue train ran on August 23, 1997. Today, most of the line has been abandoned and is in a highly deteriorated condition.
