Remarks & Notes 
One of the seven original ‘Galloping Geese’, Rio Grande Southern No. 7 ran passenger and freight service in southwest Colorado. No. 7 was built in 1936 and was the last and largest of the Geese, using a 1926 Pierce Arrow limousine body and a 1936 Ford V-8 power plant. The engine was moved to the Colorado Railroad Museum in 1983 where it was restored and now runs passengers around the grounds on weekends. The museum has two other original Geese, No. 2 and No. 6 and like their bigger brother No. 7, both are operable and can be found running the rails around the museum’s 15 acres.
