K-36 #483. She resides at the Cumbres & Toltec's Chama Yard awaiting cosmetic restoration. Wether she'll operate again I don't know. Fingers crossed.

What made the Rio Grande so endearing to railfans, and even historians, was its rugged main line through the Rocky Mountains that required large and powerful locomotives to move freight, during both the steam and diesel eras. Seen here is a trio of the road's classic SD40T-2 tunnel motors, a GP40-2, and GP40 as they muscle westbound freight #151 up Soldier Summit at appropriately named Helper, Utah on September 28, 1985.
