At one time, the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad was the longest track in the United States - from Silverton, the treasure chest of the west with the silver ore and coal mines that never quit, to Farmington, the desolate 47 mile stretch to New Mexico.

Richardson also reflects on the Third Division between Salida, Gunnison and Montrose, and the Valley Line between Mears Junction and Alamosa, Colorado with 50-year-old photographs and firsthand accounts.
