The Funiculars of Golden Colorado

$11.95

Funicular railways were popular tourist attractions in early 1900s America. The spread of railroad over the previous half-century had provided new-found freedom to visit other parts of the country. In hilly or mountainous locations, funiculars-or incline railways- offered an easy and exciting way to reach the heights and admire the best views.

This book tells of two funiculars built in Golden Colorado, in 1912 and 1913. Their popularity rose and fell in a very short time, because in that same period, the automobile was coming into wide use. Convenient as rail travel was, the touring public soon found that driving themselves was even better. Discover an enchanting interlude in Golden Colorado's history.
