Railroad Equipment

Engine No. 20; RICO; Caboose No. 0578; Streetcar 3101; No 25; Railway Car No. 22

Equipment acquired by the Club was preserved and restored by volunteers working at the Colorado Railroad Museum. This equipment included Rio Grande Southern locomotive No. 20, Denver & Rio Grande Western Caboose #0578, Rio Grande Southern Business Car #021 (the “Rico”); Ft. Collins Municipal Railway Car #22 (the “Birney”); Los Angeles Railway PCC Car #3101; a former Colorado & Southern box car and a former Public Service Company of Colorado motor car. The Birney has been transferred to the Pikes Peak Historical Street Railway Foundation (PPHSRF). Their restoration efforts are remarkable, giving the Birney a fresh off the factory floor look. The PPHSRF also owns PPC Car #3101 which is stored in serviceable condition in Colorado Springs. http://www.coloradospringstrolleys.com/.

The other pieces of equipment are now owned by the Colorado Railroad Museum. Locomotive No. 20 is undergoing significant restoration in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. http://coloradorailroadmuseum.org/museum-home/locomotives/?doing_wp_cron=1338505014
