This book illustrates the narrow gauge freight trains operated by the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad between Alamosa, Colorado and Chama, New Mexico, during the years 1965 to 1968. The 92 miles of track connecting those two points were part of 293 miles of narrow and dual gauge railroad still then operated by the D&RGW, the remnant of what had once been an extensive narrow gauge railroad 'empire' in the Rocky Mountains.

The Alamosa-Chama segment, notable for its mountain scenery, included a dramatic crossing of 10,015-foot high Cumbres Pass. Includes maps and a roster of D&RGW narrow gauge equipment in 1968.

R/Robb Ltd, softcover, 112 pages, 11 x 8.5 x .25 in., B&W photographs.
