Just want to take a moment today to give thanks to my 21 active followers as well as all the other readers of my blog. I just started using WordPress in late September 2011 and already have nearly 900 views. I should have all my historical blog entries from other sites consolidated here in the next few weeks. I hope everyone was a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

Latest YouTube Video Upload. Raw material Taken on May 9, 2010 at the Colorado Railroad Museum during Goosefest 2010. The main highlight of this video is a Cab Ride in Rio Grande Southern #6.
In 1934 Goose #6 was built from the body of a Buick sedan and a Buick engine. She runs on two trucks, the rear one is powered. Most of the parts used to build #6 came from Goose #1 which had just been scrapped. Number 6 replaced the steam-powered work trains on the railroad, she never saw regular passenger service.
Later, #6 was rebuilt with Pierce-Arrow body and engine. Today she is preserved at the Colorado Railroad Museum and is still operational.
