CRA NO. 24 - A Ticket To Ride The Narrow Gauge


Colorado Rail Annual No. 24: A Ticket to Ride the Narrow Gauge: A Chronological History of the Denver & Rio Grande Narrow Gauge Passenger Trains and their Equipment 1871-1981

This book, for the first time, tells the complete story of the passenger trains on the narrow gauge lines of the Denver & Rio Grande Western and its predecessors from 1871 until 1981. Included are schedules, car and locomotive assignments, sleeping cars, and many operating details. Year-by-year rosters untangle the complex genealogy of car rebuilding and renumbering. Rio Grande Southern, Rio Grande Western, and its Utah origins, Florence & Cripple Creek, and the Silverton short lines are covered as well.
Historic photographs, timetables, official correspondence, advertisements, a complete list of dining stations, and a description of surviving lines and equipment round out the book. The author spent many years gathering material for this definitive reference.
