This locomotive was built by Brooks over
100 years ago for the Colorado & Northwestern,
it ran out of Boulder at one time. The C&Nw
ended up as the Denver, Boulder, & Leadville
until 1919 when mother nature decided they
did not need to run trains anymore and it ended
up the Denver Scrappers "Morse Brothers"
which scrapped out much of the Colorado NG Railroads. Instead of being scrapped it was
traded to the C&S where she ran through 1943.
It sat in their yard for a few years until it
was discovered by a member of the Rocky Mountain RR Club after WW2. It ended up
going to the RGS in the late 1940's and was
almost scrapped at the end of the RGS but
for the efforts of one man in Boulder who spearheaded the efforts for the city to be able to buy it for the city park. It sat in the park for decades occasionally getting a new coat of paint applied. It is on loan now to the CO RR Museum in Golden painted as Colorado & Northwestern #30
