I realize that this post may be off topic, but beg the indulgence of the group 
since several of you live in the Denver area.

Prior to the current DUS renovation, Amtrak's CZ followed the original CZ's 
access procedure in that the wyeing of the train was done on the Burlington 
side of the route.  This meant that the westbound train backed into the station 
whereas the eastbound pulled forward into it.  This meant that only the North 
Yard to DUS and North Yard to Burlington Yard legs of the wye were used by the 
train.  However, in a few recent youtube videos recorded after the reopening of 
the station that I have seen, the eastbound is now also backing into the 
station.  Does this mean that the CZ is now using the DUS to Burlington Yard 
leg of the wye?  Have there been any significant changes to the track 
arrangement in the Burlington Yard?
