When the Denver and Rio Grande Western three-foot narrow gauge closed, a chapter in American railroad history closed as well. Narrow gauge freight and passenger trains went through the Rocky Mountains with the goal of settling the West. Once that goal was met, the days of the Narrow Gauge were numbered. Looking back, now all that’s left are memories and photographs. Robert W. Richardson offers insights, stories, and plenty of pictures from Alamosa to Colorado.
