D&RGW 5500 Series Stockcar

The 5500 Series Stock Car was a seasonal car on the narrow gauge, at least after the turn of the century.  they were mainly used during the Fall stock rush when large numbers of sheep and cattle than had been grazing on the mountain vegetation for the spring nd summer needed to be transferred to the standard gauge operations so they could make it to the stockyards in Denver, Omaha, and other large Midwest cities.  During any other time of the year you would have been hard pressed to find one of these in use, as they sat and took up yard and siding space over the entire system during the winter, spring, and summer.  This model is included in Immersive Railroading Proper.
