Although much of the Rio Grande's standard gauge route between Denver and Salt Lake City has been well-documented over the years, some regions of the mainline have been overlooked. R.C. Farewell has spent nearly nine years documenting these overlooked areas, assembling vintage as well as current views and uncovering pertinent historical data.

Rio Grande Secret Places Volume One: The Tunnel District

This accumulation of material is presented here in the first of a two volume set on Rio Grande's secret places. This volume covers the Tunnel District of Colorado's front range. Included are over 150 striking images from this region, including nearly 30 in color. Described and illustrated are historical foundations of the present route, as well as past and current operations over the line. Photos include both steam and diesel, providing views of Denver & Salt Lake, Denver & Rio Grande Western and Southern Pacific.

Rio Grande Secret Places Volume Two: Ruby Canyon and the Desert

Some of the most magnificent main line railroading anywhere can be found in the western Colorado-eastern Utah desert country. A detailed and photographic history of the route is presented for the first time in the second volume of R.C. Farewell's Rio Grande Secret Places, which portrays both the desert and its Ruby Canyon in spectacular fashion. Pictorial emphasis is on Rio Grande, Southern Pacific and Union Pacific operation in recent years, but a few rare D&RGW steam views are included. Three-dimensional maps highlight key areas. There is coverage of many miles of alignment that were graded but never used, and of obscure desert tidbits such as the Ballard & Thompson Railroad.
