Maurice Greeson | 223 project


In 2009 Maurice walked by the shop and struck up a conversation with the volunteers. Before he left he was hooked on the thought of working on the restoration of the Denver & Rio Grande steam locomotive #223. He and his wife came to Ogden to be close to family, the scenery and the “unpredictable weather”. Maurice was into photo camera retail in his past life and brings significant knowledge of photography to the shop along with his other hobbies of wood working and machine tool capabilities.

Maurice claims no relatives with railroad experience but now claims great pleasure in volunteering with “good old boys with big toys”. His is proud to be part of the camaraderie of the shop and like so many of the other volunteers, can always find something needing to be done. Maurice believes that the #223 project will enhance the public’s image of the Union Station and its museums. He smiles when he says, “What’s not love about a steam engine?”
