In the 1930s and 40s, the Galloping Goose moved small freight and passengers around southwest Colorado. KSJD's Tom Yoder talks with Lew Matis, President of the Galloping Goose Historical Society, about the history of these gas-powered railroad cars, why they represented important innovation in their time, and an upcoming opportunity to ride on the historic Galloping Goose.
