Big News from the Ridgway Railroad Museum

Briefly - the Ridgway Railroad Museum is partnering with the Ouray County Ranch History Musuem, have purchased a significant chunk of land, and have purchased the actual Ridgway D&RG depot building (formerly a residence, located a few hundred feet from its original location).

The Ridgway museum will eventually move into the depot building.  AND - they are building a 1/2 mile of narrow gauge track (in a loop) and will be operating the replicate Goose #1 there (free rides, btw).  AND - they are recreating (from scratch) one of the smaller RGS steam locomotives, which will also operate on the loop.

It's an amazing development, and I can't be happier for all the work those folks are doing.  They need a lot of volunteer help, so if you're in the area contact them for time and work schedules.
