Colorado Rail Annual No. 22 - Journeys Through Western Rail History

This fascinating collection of articles on a variety of events from over a century of railroading in the West. Here is the first in-depth account of a legendary 1878 Colorado train wreck. A report on the construction and opening in the 1990s of Denver's new light rail line is accompanied by a description of its long-gone streetcar predecessors. In between is the history of an obscure and intriguing New Mexico shortline. You will also learn of the 1920s political maneuvers following one of Colorado's most devastating floods, and enjoy recollections of a lifetime spent working for the Union Pacific.
The 22nd volume in a long-running journal of rail history in the Rocky Mountain West, this book explores a variety of topics never before covered:
