Narrow Gauge to the San Juans
Stock #: KB10899
Author: Sam Furukawa

List Price: $53.95
Karen's Price: $44.95

It was the Great Age of railroad expansion in the American West. In 1879 the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad began building its San Juan Extension. The rails pushed west from Alamosa, Colorado heading for the rich mining districts of the San Juan Mountains. The goal was Silverton, Colorado, and in all, the route would total 245 miles.

D&RG's successor, the Denver & Rio Grande Western ran until 1968. Two segments of the line were saved to be operated as historic railroad experiences. The Cumbres & Toltec Scenis Railroad and the Durango & Silverton Railroad. The photos in this book shot in the 21st Century document the trains that ran over the 1,015 foot Cumbres Pass and through the deep Animas River Gorge.

In addition, 233 NEW PHOTOS of the Eureka, D&RGW #315 and D&RGW #463. Hard cover. more»
