Along with the financial devastation of the Great Depression, the Rio Grande Southern faced natural disaster as well when a mudslide cut the railroad into two pieces. A divided line severely reduced rail traffic, and the struggle to remain financially solvent in the face of these difficulties inspired the RGS to develop Motor Car #1, a cost-effective solution to severely reduced passenger, freight, and US Mail traffic. Based on the replica of Rio Grande Southern Motor #1 that resides in Colorado’s Ridgeway Railroad Museum, Bachmann's DCC-equipped Rail Truck brings whimsy and realism to narrow gauge modeling.
