Product Information

Many railroads had railbuses in one version or another. They were used on both the branch lines of the major railroads and on the local smaller railroads and narrow gauge lines.
 
When Con-Cor decided to do research for a model of a Railbus, we found that some of the most famous of all Railbuses, the Rio Grande Southerns "Galloping Geese," were still around and some are still running in tourist service.
 
This model of the Galloping Goose is a faithful representation of the original freight and passenger version of Goose #5, which first hit the rails in 1933. Number 5 was virtually identical to Geese #3 and #4, which were built a bit earlier. Goose #5 presently lives in Dolores, Colorado, and is in full operating condition. Other Geese can be found in Telluride, Colorado, at Knotts Berry Farm, and at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado. Other Railbuses can be found in train museums across the United States, such as the one in St. Louis, Missouri.
 
This model is fully ready to run, and comes with a factory-installed PC board meeting NMRA standards, so that it will be easy to install the DCC decoder of your choice.
 
Similar in construction to the Freight Version, the Tourist Version of the Galloping Goose comes with an alternate snow plow. This model operates on HOn3 narrow-gauge track.
