The C-17 Class of locomotives were actually numbered that way after the D&RG Railroad came out of bankruptcy in 1924. The locomotive that became RGS #42 though was sold to the RGS in 1916 along with 2 other Consolidation locomotives
and is the only surviving C-17 left. This locomotive was part of Bob Richardson's collection at the Narrow Gauge Hotel & Museum in Alamosa but eventually was
one that had to be let go to other owners when the collection was relocated to
Golden and became the foundation of the Colorado Railroad Museum. It had 3
owners after Bob and is currently part of the collection in the roundhouse
of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad in Durango, CO today.
