At the beginning of the month, RTD announced they were going to have a commuter rail train on display at Denver Union Station. I missed the window to tour the inside of the train however, it is still parked at the station.

The pictures are pretty self explanatory so without further ado, here is RTD and Denver’s new Silverliner V parked at Denver Union Station!

Looking a little bit north, the catenary overhead wire system is starting to take shape. Because of the heavier gauge trains, the overhead wire system also substantially larger than what we are used to seeing on the lightrail system. Personally, I have a thing for overhead wires and find this to be an amazing sight.

As a bonus, the Amtrak was pulling in just as I was getting ready to move on.


Because the commuter rail lines are still under construction, it’s a rare sight to see two trains parked under the canopy. What a treat!
