Book. Rio Grande Chasing the Narrow Gauge, Vol 2 In this second volume of his narrow gauge chronicle, noted narrow gauge preservationist Robert Richardson takes a close look at the Rio GrandeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Silverton and Farmington branches, the Third Division between Salida, Gunnison and Montrose, and the Valley Line between Mears Junction and Alamosa, Colorado. With 50-year-old photographs and firsthand accounts, Richardson offers the most authoritative chronicle yet on this portion of the Denver & Rio Grande WesternÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Rocky Mountain narrow gauge railroad empire. In a landscape (9 x 12") format that lends itself to large photographs, Bob shows the railroad, its operations and equipment in dramatic style. This 208-page hardbound book features color covers and an all-color, 16-page photo section with photos taken as far back as 1950. Features 100-pound glossy, enameled paper and a beautiful Gil Bennett color painting on the cover.
