Road Name History:
The Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad (reporting mark DRGW), often shortened to Rio Grande, D&RG or D&RGW, formerly the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, was an American Class I railroad company. The railroad started as a 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge line running south from Denver, Colorado in 1870. It served mainly as a transcontinental bridge line between Denver, and Salt Lake City, Utah.

In 1988, the Rio Grande's parent corporation, Rio Grande Industries, purchased Southern Pacific Transportation Company, and as the result of a merger, the larger Southern Pacific Railroad name was chosen for identity. The Rio Grande operated as a separate division of the Southern Pacific, until that company was acquired by the Union Pacific Railroad. Today, most former D&RGW main lines are owned and operated by the Union Pacific while several branch lines are now operated as heritage railways by various companies.

High Speed Metal Products is a Hong Kong based toy manufacturer, who runs a line of to scale car models. To my knowledge, they produced some N scale cars and locos as static displays, being marketed through various sources. They are not a regular producer of N scale model railroading equipment. They produced cheap N scale train set for Reader's Digest. High Speed, or High Speed Metal Products, N scale engines and cars are made for static display. Their trucks and couplers are not suitable for running on a layout. The engines are dummies.
