Colorado Railroad Museum: Gooses

The Colorado Railroad Museum has 3 of the 7 "Galloping Gooses" that the Rio Grande Southern (RGS) railroad converted from buses and cars in the early 1900's to make their operations more efficient and cost-effective.

The gooses got their name from the "waddling" appearance when they rode over the  badly maintained tracks...

In the last few years before the line was abandoned the RGS ran tourist trips up into the mountains.
