Requiem for

Rio Grande Locomotives on the Dead Line

Denver, March 12, 2002


These photos were taken by Jim Chance, a machinist for the D&RGW / SP / UP, at the Burnham shops in Denver. All of the units pictured were sold shortly thereafter, and shipped to new locations. It was the last time that most of these Rio Grande veterans would be seen in Denver, and we're grateful to Jim for taking the pictures while it was still possible.
