Restored D&RGW Narrow Gauge Cars – Don Paulson

Ridgway, Colorado, long known as the birthplace of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad, is the home of a museum dedicated to the preservation of the history of railroading in Ouray County and surrounding areas. The Ridgway Railroad Museum is a non-profit, member supported organization whose mission is to explain and interpret the role and significance of railroads in the history of this region by use of exhibits, a reference library, educational programs, publications and sharing information with historical and modeling groups. The Museum preserves railroad equipment, artifacts, historical data, books and photographs of Ouray County and the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. The museum has four D&RGW narrow gauge cars including caboose 0575. We also have a working recreation of RGS Motor No. 1. For more information please visit our extensive web site:
