During the middle of the day, Salt Lake City’s Amtrak station at the Rio Grande depot was a great place to observe passenger train power laying over from the Desert Wind and Pioneer trains. Three of Amtrak’s contemporaries were on hand on May 28, 1994, a GE P40DC (GENESIS AMD-103), a GE P32-BWH, and an EMD F40PH. On May 10, 1997 the Pioneer and Desert Wind trains were discontinued and by 1999, the Amtrak depot was closed and the tracks were dismantled from the depot property to make way for a shopping mall.
