It's all relative Dave. A trickle on the SP would be a flood on the D&RGW.
By the 1960's SP itself strongly preferred the long way around for lumber
-- Oregon to St Louis by way of San Antonio and Pine Bluff...

The D&RGW got a little bit of SP's traffic, but not much.

Actualy the SP dumped a fair amount of lumber traffic on the D&RGW at Ogden.
I dunno the facts of the case but I suspect it was a lot of "rollers".
