The Rocky Mountain Railroad Club has opened their Otto Perry and Irv August archives. These noted rail photographers give us a glimpse of Gunnison, Colorado in the 1940s and 1950s. Gunnison was a division point on the Denver & Rio Grande Western’s original narrow gauge mainline to Salt Lake City. Marshall Pass is located to the east of Gunnison, Crested Butte and Baldwin branches to the north, and Black Canyon and Cerro Summit are to the west. This show highlights DRGW’s biggest to smallest narrow gauge locomotives from the Class K-36 and K-37 to the C-16s, Mudhens and outside frame 2-8-0 C-21s.

    Another great one from Machines of Iron. Great footage of the third division of the D&RGW in color and B&W. Ride through the Black Canyon and see trains struggling up Cerro Summit before it was abandoned. See how a flanger was used on the Grande between Gunnison and Crested Butte in an extremely snowy segment and see what Crested Butte used to look like. 268 and 278 work the Baldwin branch and move stock trains together. A definate buy for D&RGW fans.
