As a spring storm brews to the west, Rio Grande Southern Galloping Goose No. 5 is meeting the regular Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad passenger train at Osier, Colorado, on May 25, 1999. This “motor” as RGS originally called them, was the brainchild of the creative workers at the RGS’ Ridgway Shops, to provide a less expensive way to operate trains on an expensive-to-operate narrow gauge mountain railroad.
