Rio Grande Standard Gauge Passenger Trains & Cars

Historian Charles Albi:
“For the first time, here is the complete story of Rio Grande’s standard gauge passenger car fleet from the wooden cars of the 1880s through to the ski train of the 1980s. Included is a year-by-year history of passenger service, detailed rosters of different eras, famous trains like the California Zephyr and obscure ones like the San Luis. It is the result of many years of research and will become the definitive source of information on this fascinating topic.”

8.5″ x 11″, 352 pages, over 400 images, more than half in color (many published for the first time), along with numerous illustrations of timetables, passes, menus and advertising matter.
