Crescent, Colorado

Near the area of Gross Point Reservoir is Crescent, another passing track with a sizeable number of homes nearby. Crescent is the location of a large curve with a passing track on the line. These two photos show Crescent in the wintry months. The top photo shows a mixed train with a large representation of DRGW power. Specifically, the locomotives are "tunnel locomotives", meaning they have cooling systems and ventilation designed to work in long tunnels.

SP 398 heads a coal train just above Crescent, about to enter Tunnel #19.
