  • The Colorado Road. History, Motive Power & Equipment of the Colorado & Southern and Fort Worth & Denver Railways (Wagner)

The Colorado & Southern-Fort Worth & Denver system embodied the entire scope of railroading. For the first time, the complete history of this railroad empire - mountain narrow gauge, interurban electric, and high iron mainline - is covered in detail. With over 650 photographs (many from original glass-plate negatives), nearly 100 locomotive and equipment plans and diagrams, many maps, yard layouts, timetables and four superbly reproduced full colour paintings by railroad artists Otto Kuhler, Howard Fogg, Robert Jensen, and Ed McLaughlin. Research has uncovered complete rosters for both the Colorado & Southern (standard and narrow gauge) and the Fort Worth & Denver. Data includes steam and diesel locomotives, motor cars, electric interurbans, passenger cars and other rolling stock. This book also covers the Wichita Valley, Trinity & Brazos Valley, Burlington-Rock Island, Denver & Interurban, Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek District and the 2-foot gauge Gilpin Tram. Many of the photos, diagrams and data are devoted to the fabled Alpine Tunnel route of the Denver, South Park & Pacific-Denver, Leadville & Gunnison and the famed Georgetown Loop line of the Colorado Central-Union Pacific, Denver & Gulf. 1970 The Intermountain Chapter, National Railway Historical Society, Inc.
