More Up Clear Creek on the Narrow Gauge is a collection of 88 articles by Harry W. Brunk that originally appeared in the bi-monthly magazine, NARROW GAUGE & SHORT LINE GAZETTE. It continues the story told in the author's first book, Up Clear Creek on the Narrow Gauge, of his HOn3 scale model railroad. He based his Union Central & Northern Layout on the Clear Creek District of the 3-foot-gauge Colorado & Southern Railroad that ran from Golden, Colorado, to just beyond Silver Plume.

Although this book tells the story of the author's layout, it is not a how-to-do-it book. Rather it is a book of inspiration and motivation the author has an infectious enthusiasm for his modeling and his subject. Thus More Up Clear Creek on the Narrow Gauge is also a history book-modeling the C&S as it was in the late 1920s and early 1930s required a great deal of research. The history of the area is discussed in the text and reflected in the accurate modeling not only of the railroad and its equipment, but also of the houses, churches, mines, and businesses along the line.

Whether you are a model railroader, a railfan, or just curious about the intimate details of the Clear Creek Canyon area of Colorado, you will find something of interest in this book. Modelers will find inspiration and techniques that are applicable to whatever railroad they model, be it Eastern, Western, narrow or standard gauge, logging or mining.
