"Little Engines, Big Men" by Gilbert A Lathrop. A classic collection of heartwarming railroad stories of the men and women who built and worked on the narrow gauge railroads of Colorado. Among the early-day railroads of North America, none has left so rich a heritage of romance, excitement, and glamour as have Colorado's narrow gauges. Penetrating into the heart of the Rockies, these diminutive carriers represented life itself to those who lived along the right of way. In this book are stories of these now abandoned roads -- the Denver, South Park and Pacific, the Florence and Cripple Creek, the Colorado Midland (the first standard gauge line to cross the Colorado Rockies), and of the most colorful of them all, the Denver and Rio Grande, which started life as a narrow gauge railroad and [became] the Denver and Rio Grande Western, a vital link in the nation's vast transcontinental railroad system. 1955, hard bound, 339 pages, illustrated, dust jacket, excellent used condition.
