This DVD begins with a 1947 fantrip over Narrow Gauge country organized by Nolan Black for a California group.  You'll see two days of material on the Rio Grande Southern portion of their trip. The following day 455 heads back to Rico where we see 20 about to take-over as our coverage ends.

There are brief trackside views of engine 41, and a freight with 461 and 464, plus a couple of the geese. On one trip we see a freight with 20 and then get some shots of goose 5. The next day one of the group rides number 5 from Rico. There is a charter by four railfans of goose number 3 which goes to Telluride, then to Lizard Head. This 1951 trip has a freight with 461 following about a mile or less behind them, making for some interesting action shots. There are plenty of onboard shots on the excursion trains, plus on the goose trips, giving the viewer a great feel for this remote railroad. There is just enough trackside action to break-up the riding, as they stop for a few runbys, or throw switches. Maps guide you along the way for each segment.

This is a video you won't find anywhere else!
