Rio Grande. . .to the PACIFIC!

Part #: SDB-RIOGRANDETOTHEPACIFIC

Sundance Books 


From the book: "This account of the Rio Grande system can be visualized in any of four different ways. It is a chronology of the development of the system's trackage-why it was built or bought, used, sold or abandoned. Motive power is traced in considerable detail, including the first complete compilation of RGW locomotives. The story of the railroad's activities can be read as one would read a novel, or the reader can discover how the system was assembled, company by company, each with its own peculiar contribution to the organization at the time."
