Remarks & Notes 
On display in the Durango Museum, Engine 42 was one of the 2-8-0 locomotives built by Baldwin in 1887 for the D&RG. In November 1916 the engine was sold to the Rio Grande Southern and was used till the RGS was dismantled in 1952. In 1953 the engine was sold to the Narrow Gauge Motel in Alamosa. In 1958 the 42 was sold to Magic Mountain Amusement Park in Golden, Colorado, where it was converted to burn fuel oil and operated for a short time. In 1969 it was put on display in Monument, Colorado in front of a bank. In 1971 engine 42 returned to Golden as a restaurant display at Heritage Square. Finally in 1983 it was purchased and brought to Durango. It has never been restored to operating condition
