The Galloping Goose

The Galloping Geese were railcars built by the Rio Grande Southern Railroad in the 1930's. but to haul mail throughout Colorado's Rocky Mountains. They ran until the RGS abandoned their rights-of-way in 1952. In all seven were built, of these only six survive and are operational today. The Number 1 Goose (this one) was replicated and sits on display at the Ridgway Railroad Museum in Ridgway ,Colorado. I know what you're thinking, "That's not a Buick."
