#11 GE 25 Ton Switcher(above) - 3' Narrow Gauge - while
a permanent piece of our collection, the "Dinky" has
been loaned to the Colorado Historical Society. It will
be restored and used on the Georgetown Loop until more narrow
gauge equipment can be found for the loop, and eventually
returned to us fully restored and operational.
44 GE Ton Switcher
- unusual in that it had two complete
sets of diesel engine/generators - one on each side of the
cab. The 44 ton rating was established to permit operation
by one engineer as union contracts specified both an engineer
an fireman in locomotives of 90,000 lbs. or more.
This 44 Tonner is the property of the Canon City & Royal
George Scenic Railway.
