Farewell has spent nearly nine years documenting these overlooked areas, assembling vintage as well as current views and uncovering pertinent historical data.
This accumulation of material is presented here in the first of a two Volume set on Rio Grande's secret places. This Volume covers the Tunnel District of Colorado's front range.
Included are over 150 striking images from this region, including nearly 30 in color. Described and illustrated are historical foundations of the present route, as well as past and current operations over the line. photographs include both steam and diesel, providing views of Denver & Salt Lake, Denver & Rio Grande Western and Southern Pacific.
