The Uintah Railway began at Mack, Colorado, in 1903, at a connection
with the D&RGW just west of Grand Junction. The Mack
interchange yard was dual-gauge, as the URY was a narrow-gauge carrier
of gilsonite ore from mines in Utah. All the line's engines, freight
and passenger cars are included. After passing Carbonera, the division
point of Atchee is reached–the location of a wye, coal dock,
tank, section house, engine house, machine shop, car shop and
bunkhouse. The town included company houses, a store and an ice house.
From Atchee, you are taken up the line to Baxter Pass on the
7.5-percent grade leading to the top. Contains 320 pages, with 414
black & white scenes and 7 full-color views, with detailed maps
of Mack and Atchee.
