About this title


Fascinating survey of the modern Denver & Rio Grande Western at its height as a lean, effective independent railroad doing business in the deserts of Utah and mountains of Colorado. The book is especially interesting since it was written just before Rio Grande purchased the Southern Pacific and disappeared. Includes chapters on the Moffat Tunnel main line, the joint line with Santa Fe, the Tennessee Pass main line, Soldier Summit, the routes through the desert and the canyons, the Ski Train and the Rio Grande Zephyr. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With maps. 168 pages with index.
