Below #150, the start of the Class 45 units, the Denver & Rio Grande put their narrow gauge locomotives in chronological order as they were acquired. What resulted was a hodgepodge of wheel arrangements, builders, and class numbers. Since most sources list them chronologically, including the railroad itself, we'll list them that way as well.
