Rio Grande in the 80s

  • Originally from UK and now living in Melbourne, Australia, I was lucky to be stationed to Colorado for a year over 1981/1982, during which time I followed the D&RGW during my spare time. From this period, and subsequent visits in 1985 and 1988, I have presented a selection of photographs depicting the day to day operation on the Rio Grande at the time, including the Silver Lady, the Rio Grande Zephyr. Photographs are all scanned from slides and are (hopefully) arranged line by line. I hope these photographs help bring back a few memories as they do for me.

    Please let me know if any of the locations are incorrect, it has been over 25 years in some cases!

    All dates are in dd/mm/yy format, just to confuse!
