Rig Grande Southern #40 arriving in Paradox with a short freight
 
The Placerville, Paradox & Grand Junction was a plausable On3 free-lanced railroad based upon an actual survey.  On the south end, it connected to the RGS just south of Placerville and stretched westward into the Paradox Valley before turning north to towards Grand Junction, Colorado. 

All of these pictures were taken by the late Keith Thompson for an article that appeared in the Shortline & Narrow Gauge Gazette.
