Colorado Railroad Ice Houses:
Ice houses were a new concept when the country's railroads finnally began to use them to replenish the ice necessary to keep their customers' perishable item from spoiling in transit. Railroads were reluctant users of refrigerated cars in the first place, but large shippers such as meat packers, breweries, and produce suppliers demanded they use this method to ship perishable goods. In Colorado Railroad Ice Houses the author uses photographs, drawings and maps to skillfully explore this unique project.

Colorado Railroad Water Tanks is a historical tour of the water tanks of Colorado's steam railroad era. Steam locomotives required a large quantity of water to generate the required amount of steam for motive power. Colorado railroads operated over six hundred tanks located along the approximately 6,000 miles of track. The six hundred tanks and their locations are listed in an index and documented with construction dates, sizes, water sources and pumping equipment, when the information is available. The process and history of bringing water from its source to the locomotive's tender is explained and illustrated.
