The Colorado & Western Railroad

Owned & Constructed by Barry Bogs

Bogs Locomotive Works


I spent the early afternoon of November 14th at the home of Barry Bogs, President of the Colorado and Western Railroad. This was the annual Open House event.


If you haven't yet visited Barry's layout, you must put it on your "to-do" list for next fall. What Barry has accomplished is remarkable. Nearly the entire 2nd floor of his home is dedicated to the railroad. It's literally floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall. Almost everything is scratch-built. Pictures and videos simply can't do this railroad justice. It must be seen to be truly appreciated.

All of these locomotives

are scratch-built at the Bogs Locomotive Works and all

are operational, no static models here.

The scale is IMMENSE - you almost feel the trains roll by


The San Juan... or is it The Shavano?
