Remarks & Notes 
This SW1 celebrates its 75th year and is still running strong. It must be in the running for the oldest operational engine in Colorado that is not a museum piece. Built in 1940, #63 has operated for the Elgin Joliet & Eastern Railway, Coors beer, Colorado Sweet Gold, and most recently for the Great Western Railway of Colorado (OmniTrax). Named “The Kernel” with a paint scheme to match, this engine can be found at the former Colorado Sweet Gold plant on the east side of Johnstown, Colorado.
