Notes:

Rare book! Dieselization of the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad began in earnest in 1947 following its discharge from bankruptcy court after 12 years of receivership. Throughout the 1950s, steam engines were retired and by 1956, the only steam engines the Rio Grande operated were on its narrow gauge line between Alamosa, Colo., and Farmington, N.M. The Rio Grande moved to abandon the line in 1967, and freight service ceased a year later.

Notes:

A pictorial odyssey to the Mecca of steam by Robert Darwin. Still in its original box! 386 pages. This massive and handsomely done book presents many previously unpublished photographs, including of the great Cheyenne terminal it built on the plains of Wyoming. The size of the book is impressive, with many of the images reproduced full-page, dramatically encompassing the reader with their detail and clarity and the sweep of the book is equally impressive, covering every aspect of the Cheyenne scene from 1868 to the present.

Notes:

Thousands of books and articles have been written about Walt Disney and his organization, yet few people realize the significance railroading played in the evolution of the Disney empire. Encouraged by Walt's family and railfans inside and outside the Disney organization, Michael Broggie has chronicled the tale of Walt Disney's personal involvement in railroading. The book unveils the private realm of Disney railroading through hundreds of photographs, many of which have never before been made public, and interviews with Mrs. Walt Disney, Diane Disney Miller, Ward Kimball, Ollie Johnston, Bob Harpur, Bill Cottrell, Roger Broggie, Bill Evans, and many others.
