Rio Grande Southern

The Rio Grande Southern narrow gauge built these vehicles, affectionately known as a galloping goose, to haul light loads of passengers and freight across the Rocky Mountains. The Galloping Goose fleet was much less expensive to operate than a full train consist and could traverse the mountain railroad with increased speed. They served the financially strapped Rio Grande Southern well during its final days. The Rio Grande Southern served historic places such as Durango, Dolores, Ophir, Lizard Head Pass, Telluride, and Ridgeway. This photo was taken in May 2000 at the Rio Grande Southern Museum in Dolores, Colorado.
