Rio Grand Southern Railroad Motor #7 at the Colorado Railroad Museum, Summer 1996. According to their website it was built in 10/27/36 and started out with a 1936 Ford V-8 and a 1926 Pierce-Arrow "33" body, followed by a large enclosed box for freight, packages, and mail. Later, when tourists wanted to ride, the freight body was made into a passenger compartment with seats and windows, which is the way it looks today.
7 is still in pieces but Goose 2 was running last summer at the museum. And of course RGS No4 runs on the Silverton and CTS in the summer.
