Goose,Tourist Version

New Pierce Arrow Version of Galloping Goose




      Just imagine it now, this neat little railbus drifting down the track on your layout, honking at the bystanders, bell ringing at crossings, and all with the rumble of a small gas engine in the background. (Well, maybe that is a bit overdone, but Model Railroader Magazine was so impressed they added an animated version of the Goose Sound to their Website for viewing!)

      Price of DCC w/Sound decoder not included with basic price of the Goose. If you do not want "Sound" you can buy a DCC decoder with fewer functions for speed control only and it will work just fine also.



     Railbuses had their origins in the 1920's and 1930's when mail and passengers had to be delivered to remote branch line areas. On "slow" business days or in the off-season when business was light they took the place of an expensive steam locomotive and crew.

     Many railroads had Railbuses in one version or another. They were used on both the branch lines of the major railroads and on the local smaller railroads and narrow gauge lines.

     When Con-Cor decided to do research for a model of a Railbus, we found that some of the most famous of all Railbuses, the Rio Grande Southern's "Galloping Geese" were still around and some are still running in tourist service.

     Our model of the Galloping Goose is a faithful representation of the original freight and passenger version of Goose #5, which first hit the rails in 1933. Number 5 was virtually identical to Geese #3 and #4 which were built a bit earlier. Goose #5 presently lives in Dolores, Colorado, and is in full operating condition. Other Geese can be found in Telluride, Colorado, at Knott's Berry Farm and at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden Colorado. Other Railbuses can be found in train museums around the U.S.A. such as the one in St. Louis.

     This model is fully ready-to-run, and comes with a factory-installed PC board meeting NMRA standards so that it will be easy to install the DCC decoder of your choice.
