    At some point between Monday, September 14, and Tuesday, September 22, the wooden smokebox door from the Emma Sweeney - the Hollywood reproduction of RGS 20 for "Ticket to Tomahawk" - was stolen from the fenced area in Durango's Santa Rita Park. The Durango Railroad Historic Society has been working to restore Emma for the past three years for display in the park.

    The thing has no scrap value, as it's made from wood, and has little value overall since it's both extremely unique and now widely known to be stolen property. However, the historic value is tremendous. As such, the DRHS would just like it returned, no questions asked.

    An article about the theft can be found in the Durango Herald. -
