Last of a Breed: Rio Grande Finale at Helper, Utah

$69.95

With incredible scenic mountains and deserts to cross, the D&RGW certainly has its share of devout enthusiasts. Born of the visions of General William Jackson Palmer in 1870, Rio Grande transported people and freight for nearly 120 years before megamergers begin to erode an illustrious past. As a new millennium approached, the “Rebel of the Rockies” was two mergers removed from the modern railroad scene. Nestled between the Wasatch Mountains and intermountain desert of Utah, a town named Helper sheltered a vision of the past. Join us for a look at what we found. Lavishly illustrated with 320 color photographs, this 240 page book documents the final days of the RG Tunnel Motor locomotives operating on the UP, laced with stories of railroading in the old days from the RG men that ran them.

Written by Mike Danneman.
320 color photographs.
240 pages.
Horizontal hardcover.
