Ride the last steam passenger trains of the Rio Grande Southern and experience the world of real narrow gauge, amid the breath-taking peaks of southwest Colorado.

In 1932 the Rio Grande Southern stopped running passenger trains. After that date the Rocky Mountain RR Club ran three steam excursions and Charlie Ryland, the club president, filmed two of them. His friend Ed Hailey, who organized the trips, edited his footage into this film. On Memorial Day 1947, the first trip departed from Ridgway to Dolores over Lizard Head Pass and returned the following day.

The second trip in 1949 ran from Ridgway to Telluride where it tied up for the night. The following day it continued on to Lizard Head, reversed direction, and returned to Ridgway. Photographed on board and from trackside, capturing all the mountain mining towns: Ridgway, Placerville, Vance Junction, Telluride, Ophir, Lizard Head and Dolores.

    Some really great footage of the Rio Grande Southern in this DVD and most definately a must have for any RGS or narrow gauge fan. Neat footage of one of Colorado’s most fabled railroad lines.
