Western Colorado’s Trains & Railroad Workers of Yesteryear [VIDEO]

Robert Grant

Here’s another video consisting of Robert Grant photos of Western Colorado from the 1940’s and 1950’s. Today’s subject matter features trains and the men and women who made them run. No doubt you’ll remember some of the trains, from Engine 318 to the Zephyr. Watch closely, there’s a chance you might even see someone you recognize.

Photos in the video include shots from the narrow gauge railroad taken in Ouray. Another photo shows a number of suits posing next to a California Zephyr. Here’s a piece of trivia: What was the name of the “stewardess” on the Zephyr? The answer is shown below.

Answer: Zephyrette (spelling counts, but I haven’t a clue if this is the proper spelling of their title) – Waylon J.
