First New Release of 2015 - Over Lizard Head Pass!

Ellen Sebring

High in the Colorado Rockies, Lizard Head Pass—elevation 10,222 feet (3,116 m)—presented a challenge for railroads, which lead in part, to the development of the fascinating fleet of Galloping Geese. The Rio Grande Southern hoped to stave off bankruptcy with these railcars that could substitute for full-sized steam trains for lighter loads and passenger traffic at much lower cost. The railcars carried cargo, the mail, and passengers to Rocky Mountain mining towns, “waddling” along the uneven track, and “honking” like geese with their old-style car horns.

See the Galloping Goose in action and much more dramatic high mountain steam in the new release, “Over Lizard Head Pass.”
