Fascinating and well-written history of Denver's Union Station, illustrated throughout with over 300 black and white photos. With 20 detailed maps.

From the arrival of the first train to the glory days of the steam era, from the days of the diesel to the arrival of Amtrak Superliners -- here is the history of the historic Union Station.
