- A misnomer is a name that is incorrectly or unsuitably applied.
There's one somewhere in this photo, see if you can find it.
This weekend at the Colorado Railroad Museum, for the first time ever, there were three steam locomotives hot and moving around the grounds. Pictured are two of them, Denver and Rio Grande Western consolidation No. 346, and Rio Grande Southern ten-wheeler No. 20.
One, the 346 is having her last hurrah for a while, as she'll go down for her 1472-Day inspection here shortly after this weekend. Meanwhile, the 20, has just returned to service in 2020 after 69 year slumber when the Rio Grande Southern employed her till the end of operations in 1951. Later this year, she'll get to stretch her legs on the high iron with a trip to the Cumbres and Toltec, a feat which to my knowledge, has never been accomplished as every operable CRRM steam locomotive has not left the ground (aside from trips to Strasburg for work).
