Union Pacific local LCG04 at Greeley, CO

Union Pacific local LCG04 at Greeley, CO

Before we get to Cheyenne we are going to take another little detour. Fifty-two miles north of Denver, local LCG04 with engines 122 and 134 pulls out of Greeley, CO in the late afternoon of September 19, 1987. Not far behind it is train DENP. Six miles south is the junction with the now abandoned line between La Salle and Julesburg. The DENP and its predecessors used this route as a short-cut to bypass Cheyenne.
