Time always marches on and, as it does, change inevitably happens. When the Rio Grande Zephyr stopped running in April 1983, the future of Rio Grande's last few F9s was very uncertain. In 1984, they were used on slow, heavy slag trains in maintenance service. Fortunately in the end, DRGW 5771 (F9A) and DRGW 5762 (F9B) found a home at the Colorado Railroad Museum. There, they underwent a restoration project in which the four stripe scheme was applied to them. Ironically, neither had ever worn the four stripe scheme prior to arriving at the museum!
