The Great Western Railway
The Great Western Railway, a subsidiary of the Great Western Sugar Company, was designed to bring freshly harvested sugar beets in from the fields of north-central Colorado to Great Western factories for processing. It also hauled raw materials to the factories and delivered refined sugar to common carriers. With such a specialized purpose, it is a tribute to the short line that it still survives today.

This book, complete with 186 photos, 14 drawings and 6 maps, provides an overview of the railroad from its beginning in 1901 to modern times, including its later role in TV shows and movies.
