Colorado Midland Railway

by Dan Abbott

ISBN No. 091358245X


The Colorado Midland Railway began spiking down its standard-gauge trackage in Colorado Springs during 1886. It was the first standard gauge railroad to penetrate Colorado's Rocky Mountains and reached the booming silver camp of Aspen in 1888, by way of a tunnel under Hagerman Pass, and backtracking up the Roaring Fork Valley from Basalt. Colorado Midland Railway is the result of over a decade of painstaking research by author Dan Abbott of Golden, Colorado. This illustrated volume contains 376 pages, includes 447 pictures, features 12 full-color views, and 15 scale drawings of locomotives, rolling stock and stations.
