The Denver & Rio Grande Western
Railroad, often shortened to Rio Grande, D&RG or D&RGW,
formerly the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, was an American Class I railroad company.
The railroad started as a 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge line running south from Denver, Colorado in 1870.
It served mainly as a transcontinental bridge line between Denver, and Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Rio Grande was also a major origin of coal and mineral traffic.
The Rio Grande was the epitome of mountain
railroading, with a motto of Through the Rockies,
not around them and later Main line through the Rockies, both referring to the Rocky Mountains.
The D&RGW operated the highest mainline rail line in the United States, over the 10,240 feet (3,120 m
Tennessee Pass in Colorado, and the famed routes through the Moffat Tunnel and the Royal Gorge.
At its height in the mid-1880s, the D&RG had the largest narrow gauge railroad network in North America
with 2,783 miles (4,479 km) of track interconnecting the states of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.
Known for its independence, the D&RGW operated the last private intercity passenger train in the
United States, the Rio Grande Zephyr, which was discontinued in 1983.
In 1988, the Rio Grande's parent
corporation, Rio Grande Industries, purchased
Southern Pacific Transportation Company, and as the result of a merger, the larger Southern Pacific Railroad
name was chosen for identity. The Rio Grande operated as a separate division of the Southern Pacific,
until that company was acquired by the Union Pacific Railroad. Today, most former D&RGW main lines
are owned and operated by the Union Pacific while several branch lines are now operated as
heritage railways by various companies.
