Robert Richardson's Rio Grande
Chasing the Narrow Gauge, Vol. II

By Robert W. Richardson  


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 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, 211 black and white & 30 color photos taken as far back as 1950. Features 100-pound glossy, enameled paper and a beautiful Gil Bennett color painting on the cover.
