The Rio Grande Southern has always been a fabled narrow gauge line that ran from Durango to Ridgeway, and was a subsidiary of the Denver & Rio Grande Western. It was abandoned in 1951, and still holds the fascination of many railroad enthusiasts. So now 70 years later we get to see a fully restored 4-6-0, as engine #20 powers trains on narrow gauge rails once more. We begin in August of 2020 at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado, the home for the engine. A long restoration has brought it back to life and we see it on a special charter freight, with passenger cars, and many runbys. The next day we see it on the turntable near the roundhouse, see some servicing, and watch a couple of passenger train runs, all in great weather.|
Remember the title is RGS 20 and Friends. Well we have other things related to the Rio Grande Southern like a visit to Goosefest in Ridgway, Colorado and back to Golden to see more Galloping Geese in action. We watch these geese in action...Goo
