Rio Grande Southern Memories

Rio Grande Southern Memories
Click Here for Larger Image
There are a lot of books out on the Rio Grande Southern but few videos. This rare footage comes from 3 or 4 different photographers. Most is 8mm, but some is 16mm. We begin with a 1947 fantrip over Narrow Gauge country organized by Nolan Black for a California group. We see two days of material on the Rio Grande Southern portion of their trip. We see engine 20 west of Rico, where it is traded for engine 455 for the run to Ridgeway. The following day 455 heads back to Rico where we see 20 about to take-over as our coverage ends. Lots of neat stuff on this two day trip including all the highlight spots like Ophir, and the other icon locations.

There are brief trackside views of engine 41, and a freight with 461 and 464, plus a couple of the geese which is 16mm black and white. The rest of the footage is all color. On one trip we see a freight with 20 and then get some shots of goose 5. The next day one of the group rides number 5 from Rico. There is a charter by 4 railfans of goose number 3 which goes to Telluride, then to Lizard Head. This 1951 trip has a freight with 461 following about a mile or less behind them, making for some interesting action shots. There are plenty of onboard shots on the excursion trains, plus on the goose trips, so you really get a great feel for this remote railroad. There is just enough trackside action to break-up the riding, as they stop for a few runbys, or throw switches. Maps guide you along the way for each segment. Here is a video you won't find anywhere else.
