Grand Junction Division includes the trackage from Salida on west to Minturn, Grand Junction and Helper, along with the ancillary branches.  The original narrow gauge transcontinental mainline was transferred to Grand Junction Division from the Alamosa Division in Grand Junction #137, January 11, 1953.  These lines were later abandoned.  Grand Junction Division was later split, with the lines east of Grand Junction going to the Colorado Division and the lines west of Grand Junction going to the Utah Division (along with the Montrose and North Fork branches).
