NOTE: We have recently learned that Jeff Ainsworth, author and owner of Monte Vista Publishing, passed away on October 16, 2023. For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

DURANGO & SILVERTON NARROW GAUGE RAILROAD

Default Title: $25.95 USD

THIS IS NOT A NEW RELEASE, BUT RATHER A NEW LISTING ON OUR WEBSITE

The Durango & Silverton offers one of the most spectacular train rides in North America. Steep grades, sharp curves, narrow ledges, and perilous chasms are the hallmarks of this popular narrow gauge tourist railroad. Much of the route can only be accessed by train, and the pristine beauty of southwestern Colorado's San Juan Range remains hidden to all but the railroad's crews and travelers.

Over three years in the making, this show takes you into the heart of the Durango &amp Silverton line. You'll see all the famous locations: the breathtaking Highline balancing 400 feet above the River of the Lost Souls, the Narrows, Rockwood Cut with its huge red granite rock formations, and Silverton, perched at an elevation of 9,288 feet. Mikado steam locomotives are seen hard at work throughout the tourist seasons and there are exquisite scenes of a rare winter excursion when the landscape is blanketed with snow. Touring the train yards and servicing areas, filled with restored historic equipment, is reminiscent of the early days of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Here are the scenic wonders of narrow gauge railroading through the Rockies as few have seen them.
