Meet Phil Johnson, CMO of the CRRM

Here's a good little article on Phil Johnson and his work as the CMO (Chief Mechanical Officer) at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden.

On a side note, I'm glad to see the Denver Leadville & Gunnison engine 191 is finally getting some attention. For years, she's stood as a shadow of what she once was. Will she steam again? I don't know, but with all the steam power coming on line in the last few years and the current projects in the works, anything is indeed possible.


  1. It wold be neat but I doubt that it will get more than a cosmetic restoration. They have there hands full with #318's rebuld and #20 at Stratburg.

    Thank for posting,
    Keep up the good work

  2. As I understand, 191 will never run again because of her boiler and regulations related to it. Still, it will be nice to see her looking good!
