Rio Grande Locomotives.


One of the unique operations of the DRGW is the Ski Train from Denver to Winter Park. In the top photo, DRGW3155 rests at Denver Union Station on a Saturday evening in March of 1997. These locomotives were purchased on a "power by the hour" basis in 1991 and saw service on the Ski Train on numerous occasions even up into 2001. The numbers were 3154, 3155 and 3156. 3156 was painted yellow after the UP merger. These were the last locomotives delivered in black and gold for DRGW.


In December of 2000, DRGW3154 returned to Ski Train service when one of the new Ski Train locomotives broke down. Here it is at night at Denver Union Station.
