Rio Grande Southern Locomotive No. 20

All Aboard
Throughout the history of our great state, we’ve always been able to accomplish great things together. And today, we ask you to come alongside and help us preserve one of Colorado’s grand narrow-gauge locomotives and put Rio Grande Southern No. 20 back into service.

Once restored, thousands of guests will have the distinct privilege of riding behind this magnificent Iron Horse right here at Colorado Railroad Museum. We want you to be among the first to hear, “all aboard.”

Please join us in the final stages of restoring No. 20, and take pride and satisfaction in what we hope will be your generous donation toward this gold nugget in Colorado railroad history. We’ve created a number of unique opportunities through which your financial support can be recognized and celebrated.
