Welcome to another Big Train Tour at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This month, we’re covering the second of three “Galloping Goose” motorcars displayed at the Museum, all of which were once owned and operated by southwest Colorado’s Rio Grande Southern railroad.
Our subject for this episode is a unique, narrow-gauge, motorized railcar that was designed and built not to haul passengers or freight, but rather to facilitate repair and maintenance work along this railroad’s rugged route. Today, Rio Grande Southern motor number 6 is proudly displayed at the Museum, with a unique history to share!
