Introduction

This is a mostly complete steam roster of the D&RGW. In addition, most of the units from the predecessor D&RG are included. Other predecessor roads (particularly the RGW) are less well represented. There are a few oddball units missing, and I'll be adding those in the near future.

D&RGW Steam Survivors

Most of the surviving Rio Grande steam exists today on the D&RGW's two successor narrow gauges - the Durango & Silverton and the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic. These two roads hold the largest collection of Rio Grande steam engines anywhere, and most still operate.

Only one standard gauge steam engine survives today - D&RGW 683, kept at the Colorado Railroad Museum.

Credits

Clearly I didn't live through the D&RGW steam era, nor am I adequately omnicient to just come up with this information. Thus, it's only fair that I acknowledge those who have come before me and put the pieces together from which the steam rosters draw.
