  • Rio Grande Southern Depot Museum

Richard Dorman, a Santa Fe architect, faithfully reincarnated the classic Queen Anne Style depot lost to a fire. The steep-pitched, cross-gabled upper story contains the stationmaster's quarters, with freight and passenger services below. The new depot is a fine nest for Galloping Goose No. 5, one of the famed flock of seven hybrid rail and motor vehicles. Goose No. 5 initially had a 1925 Pierce Arrow engine attached to a Wayne bus.
