background. These are pretty small but they run really nicely, and we
are using the "Golden White" LED's for lighting which more closely simulate
the incandencent lighting used on the original Galloping Goose.

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.
Normal Retail price is $198.98 for the Dual Mode DC / DCC version.
