An unnamed benefactor has provided funding to return the engine to operating condition. The restoration is being performed in Strasbourg PA.

The Rocky Mountain Railroad Historical Foundation was founded in 1990 by the Rocky Mountain Railroad Club for the purpose of restoring historic railroad equipment. For many years our main project was the restoration of Denver and Intermountain No. 25 (the only totally intact, surviving car of Denver's once vast electric railway system). Car 25 was added to the National Register on January 12, 2012. The foundation page details how this piece of Colorado history was saved from the scrapper.

railroad passenger car No. 25 was one of seven cars that provided passenger service between downtown Denver and Golden over the Denver Tramway Company's 13 mile standard gauge line. A history of No. 25 can be found by visiting the Foundation page. train books videos books videostrains equipmentbooks videos

This site is the result of the enormous contributions of the members of the Rocky Mountain Railroad Club. All railroad photography and writing contributed for this project are used with much appreciation.
