D&RGW 491 was in operation on September 20 for Day Out With Thomas. The 491 was pushing Thomas and pulling a 7 car train.

491 was moved into the shops 2 days ago for some final work. This locomotive will be running shortly.

I would hope that if the CRRM gets the chance they would restore this engine as well.  I would guess the track might not be heavy enough to take the wieght, but it would bring a big crowd to see this thing going so near Denver.
