This film captures its journey in three parts: first, the Westbound ascent from Denver up the Rocky Mountains to the Moffat Tunnel; next, continuing West through impressive canyons along the Colorado River. Finally we see the run from Salt Lake City on the return trip eastbound over the Wasatch Range and through the Utah desert. See the views from the Vista Domes on The Rio Grande Zephyr as it kept alive the style and elegant tradition of streamlined passenger service!
