The "Grays Peak" car is C&S 1116/RGS 2102 and is at the CRRM today.

RGS 2102 Now Grays Peak.jpg

Back in 1972 I tried and tried to purchase RGS #2101. It was in Ridgway and the real owners could not be found. The car had been sold at the Sheriffs auction, to a group in Wisconsin wanting to start a tourist line. The idea never happened and the 2101 continued to sit in Ridgway on original 30 pound rail. Finally Don Drawer persuaded the D&RGW to give the car to him because it was on their right of way in Ridgway and was "in the way". They did just that, but unfortunately, Don never did anything to the car and it sat for all those years at the Flying D Ranch.

I look forward to its restoration. The 2 cars need to be "reunited" for the inaugural run??????
