Title: Rio Grande Southern Railroad train near Lizard Head (Colo.)
Date/circa:  1890/1909
Photographer: Kindig, R. H.
Subjects: Rio Grande Southern Railroad (Colo.); ; Railroads--Colorado--Rolling-stock--Pictorial works; Lizard Head Pass (Colo.)
Notes: Mile Post 052.61 (approximately). "The C-16 pulling the train appears to be #15 but it is hard to tell with the switchstand in the way of the number." [Source of quote: Robert Herrone, email 3/27/07, with some text he drew from Steven Haworth's RGSRR website.] This photo was previously dated 5/29/1949 but Mr. Herrone believes it is "from the 1890s or maybe 1900s."
