    Rio Grande Southern #1. This is not the original RGS mail vehicle but a very close and accurate operating reproduction of the original which was built from a early model Buick. This narrow gauge vehicle has been operated on the nearby Durango and Silverton railroad. Photo taken in Ridgeway, Colorado. Here is a bit of history on this vehicle.
