Almost all of this abandonment is still in service, what is missing is the transfer track between the Old Denver Rio Grande & Western Tracks and the UP tracks west of 24th St in what is now Ogden. What's somewhat interesting is that one of the bridges along the line (specifically, the one over the River) has been designated for historic preservation. https://www.utah.gov/pmn/files/134963.pdf
