Otto Mears' narrow-gauge Rio Grande Southern Railroad began at Ridgway
in 1890 where this amazing story starts. The line eventually covered a
distance of 162 miles to reach Durango. The Ridgway roundhouse and
station grounds begin this volume which continues with trains climbing
to Dallas Divide over to Placerville and Vance Junction. From Vance
Junction, the mile-by-mile coverage is continued over the Telluride
Branch. Structure drawings are included, such as at Vance Junction,
with pictures. Featured are views of engines and Galloping Geese, as
well as passenger and freight trains. Contains 446 black &
views and 103 color scenes on 496 pages.
