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.

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

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!
