Welcome to another Big Train Tour at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This month, we’ll be taking a look at a unique, narrow-gauge, motorized railcar that was designed and built right here in Colorado. Today, Rio Grande Southern “Galloping Goose” number is proudly displayed at the Museum, with a unique history to share.

Join Colorado Railroad Museum Executive Director Paul Hammond as he explores the history behind the Museum’s unique railroad collection!
