    Where does that DOT locomotive live? At the test track in Pueblo, Colorado?

    That's an interesting old coach. Colors seem to hint of Milwaukee Road. Anyone have some background information?

    It is actually at the Pueblo Railway Museum in downtown Pueblo. Its a small museum, but they have some really neat pieces there.

    I am not 100% sure, but I believe it assisted in testing. What I mean by this is in speed tests and longevity/equipment endurance tests. Load testing would be another.
