Cane Creek Sub
The spectacular line south of Brendel, Utah into the the Colorado River Canyon naer Moab. Perhaps the bottom section of the line is the most spectacular in North America. The line has sees a weekly local on fridays from Grand Junction leaving mid morning and returning to Grand Junction in the evening. UPDATE: I understand the local now runs saturdays due to extra radioactive waste trains on all other days of the week on the top part of the branch.
