Passenger Trains of Denver: The Decade Before Amtrak 1960-1970

This delightful paperback covers the entire decade before Amtrak arrived in Denver. From Denver Union Station all the way to the discontinuation of the Texas Zephyr, this book has it all. Also included is a timeline showing the gradual demise of train service to Union Station, plus an example of why passenger service to Denver became a matter of nostalgia versus profitability. More than 50 b&w photographs by the author and others add to this tribute to the last years of commercial passenger train service to the base of the Rocky Mountains.

By John D. Mummert.
Over 40 b&w photos.
64 pages. Softcover.
