Looking south at the San Luis Central Railroad line that originates in Center, Colorado, and travels to Sugar Junction, where it meets with the San Luis and Rio Grande Railroad. Cars on this route transport potatoes, fertilizer, and grain from the farms in the central valley.
Center in the middle of the San Luis Valley has more agricultural industry than anywhere else in the valley. It’s a loading point for grains, fertilizer and potatoes that move south to connect to train lines that take those products out into the country. The town is otherwise nondescript save for a concentration of transportation and storage right in the center, with tracks heading north and south, a large water tower, and processing factories to the north and south.
Not much more to say about the evening meeting of these two icons, one American, one global, both about something bigger.
