The "geese" shown here were jazzed up for tourist service in the closing days of the Rio Grande Southern by adding seating to the freight box in a last gasp attempt to add a new source of revenue.  Imagine if the railroad had held out in tourist service until today, with Oprah skiing in Telluride and beer and music festivals all Summer long.  Eat your heart out, Durango!  The service ran much like a dude ranch, with twin out houses at the mid-station of Trout Lake labeled "goose" and "gander" for men and women.  It was popular, but due to lack of snowplows and freight, the RGS ceased operation in 1951.
