Gregory’s expertise and passion for trains run deep. As a child, he was fascinated by trains and knew that they would always be apart of his life.

Fifteen years ago, Gregory realized that soon he would be looking at retiring from Mountain Bell and he knew that he was going to need to find a way to keep himself occupied. Things changed for him when he was at a narrow gauge convention in Colorado Springs. It was at this convention that he saw an Accucraft C-16, Fn3 for the first time. At that moment, he knew that with his electronic experience and love for trains that he could provide a service to many other train lovers. Trains would be something that he would not ever grow tired of.  Imagine Gregory’s delight when he had his very own business that he called Rio Grand Southern Railroad (RGSRR) Hobbies up and running. It was very important to Gregory that RGSRR Hobbies be a reputable business that follows through on its promises. RGSRR Hobbies has been in business for more than ten years now and Gregory has loved every minute of it. Gregory’s business has grown more than he ever imagined it would. Although, his business is now international, he still provides one on one service with each of his customers. Custom sound installation, custom radio control instillation with or without sound, custom radio control for live steam locomotives, custom layout building, custom weathering, and custom kit building are some of the services Gregory offers through his business. The business is located in a 3000 series box car with 2,500 feet of outdoor rail surrounded by mountain views in Ridgway CO.  

Anyone that knows Gregory describes him as an honest, fun loving, and down to earth man. With Gregory what you see is what you get. He loves to travel with his wife, Mary, and his two dogs, Otto and Missy. He travels all over the United States to various train shows and conventions. Gregory is known for his experience, expertise, and great customer service. Gregory forms a unique relationship with each of his customers.
