Video – Goosefest 2010

14 Nov

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.
