Has there ever been a better font to adorn the longhood of a diesel unit than large Rio Grande speed lettering? No, no there has not! Ex-DRGW 3118 rests in the evening light in downtown Colorado... (more)

The Rio Grande in 2010! Only 8 Rio Grande-painted GP40s remain, so it's a nice surprise whenever one ends up powering the Colorado Springs Local. It's just bonus (and bragging) to ... (more)
