Connection with former D&RGW Employees

We are interested in hearing from former employees. The RGM&HS is looking for employees from all aspects of the Denver & Rio Grande Western to share a brief description of their job with the Rio Grande and how it advanced the Rio Grande's interests.  The goal is to broaden understanding of the many hands that were required to make the railroad a success.
