Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most treacherous, and scenic, geographic obstacles in the world are crossed by narrow gauge lines running in the mountainous regions of Colorado and New Mexico. Stunning color photography highlights the more than 100 miles of narrow gauge line still operated by historic tourist railroads today. Accompanying this stunning photography is informative text covering the historical background of narrow gauge steam, each of the railways in operation, and narrow gauge locomotives.

Synopsis:

From Wales to the modern steam-powered tourist trains of Pennsylvania, New Mexico, and Colorado. Features coal-consuming behemoths and the men and women who keep them chugging along tracks that measure just two to three feet in width.
