Robert W. Richardson’s Rio Grande, Chasing the Narrow Gauge, Vol. II: Durango, Silverton, Farmington & the Third Division

By Robert W. Richardson

"In this second volume of his narrow gauge chronicle, noted narrow gauge preservationist Robert Richardson takes a close look at the Rio Grande’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 Western’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. This deluxe edition features 100-pound glossy, enameled paper and a beautiful Gil Bennett color painting on the cover."
