This gathering of photographs is presented from the late arrivals not
included in the previous nine volumes. the story begins at Ridgway,
where Otto Mears struggled to finish the RGS before winter, and his
reasons for building nine wooden trestles at Ophir Loop. An RGS Train
Register from 1897 reveals untold stories of the railroad's operating
procedures. All 162 miles of the railroad are covered in this 416-page
pictorial, featuring 374 black-and-white views and 31 color scenes,
including right-of-way maps that previously arrived too late.
