Narrow Gauge Memories

Pictures of the Rio Grande narrow gauge in the 1960's.

Welcome to my Narrow Gauge Memories.This site is devoted to images of the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad narrow gauge between 1960 and abandonment of freight operations in 1969.

The best way to look at the images is to use the slide show function by clicking on the little arrow above the random image. The arrow on this and the next page will go through the all the images randomly, or if you click on the thumbnail below you will have the option of selecting one of three albums covering different parts of the line and the images will be shown in geographic order starting from Alamosa.
