Return of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad - 3 Film Special Edition
Rebuilding the Historic Railway in Delores, Colorado.

Film 1: The Return of the Rio Grande Southern documents the revival of a portion of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad in Colorado. The line ran from Ridgway through Telluride, Rico, Dolores, Mancos, and Durango. The Rio Grande Southern started in 1889 and was abandoned in 1952, but now the efforts of the Galloping Geese Historical Society of Dolores, Colorado, have made plans to restore a portion of the narrow gauge railway that once existed. Approx: 30 Min

Film 2: The Trains of August highlights the Durango and Silverton Railfest, the celebration that brings together classic pieces of railroading equipment to run on one of the most scenic lines in the world. The festival gathers together old timers like the "Eureka Engine", an 1875 wood-burner, and "the Galloping Geese", that used to run on the Rio Grande Southern Railroad. These are just a few of the attractions that have assembled in Durango to celebrate the spirit of Mountain Railroading. Approx: 30 Min

Film 3: The Return of Galloping Goose NO. 5: This informative feature documents the interesting railroading history about the Galloping Goose Historical Society of Dolores, Colorado, and their efforts to restore Galloping Goose No. 5 to its original operating condition. During the 1930's, when the Southern could not afford its steam train operations, the Galloping Geese were introduced, and extended the lifetime of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad by 20 years. Approx: 60 mins
