In 1988, the D&RGW consolidated with the Southern Pacific. The years immediately following were an exceptional time on the famed Soldier Summit route, which became part of SP’s Central Region and Salt Lake Division. During the late 1980s and into the 1990s, Southern Pacific dramatically expanded the rail traffic moving over Soldier Summit and SP and D&RGW locomotives worked side-by-side on the historic and rugged route.
