Description

HTML is disabled for this item description.Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
Business was terrible during the depression for the Rio Grande Southern and there was not enough freight or passengers to justify running the high maintenance steamers on the line on a daily basis. A rail truck built from a Buick was the answer. The $800 "Goose" paid for itself in less than a month.

The original RGS Goose #1 was scrapped years ago but you can build your own goose (7.25 or 7.5" gauge) to run on the days you can't run your larger engine. Or take your "easy-to-transport" electric goose to neighboring tracks (requires two 12 volt deep cycle batteries).

This drawing package includes almost a dozen highly detailed CAD drawings with all dimensions given. It also includes 16 high-res photos of the RGS#1 full scale reproduction at the Ridgeway Railway Museum.  Also included are builders notes and photos.

A complete set of Castings can be purchased from Arrow Aluminum in this system (Seller = ArrowAlum).  
The drive motor, controller and front truck can be purchased from "Plum Cove Studios".
Some basic welding and woodworking skill is required.  At just a tad over 4' long, it's easy to transport.

Purchase the drawing package now with Paypal or personal check.
