Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

History of the San Luis Southern Railway, a 31 mile shortline between Jaroso and Blanca, Colorado. Built by engineer Louis Blauvelt of "Moffat Route" fame in 1909, the little railroad was intended to serve the farms and industries of the valley. Lack of rainfall crippled agriculture in the area and the railroad struggled for most of its life. This book explores the construction, operation and obstacles it faced. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With schematic drawings of equipment and structures, bibliography, and index. 190 pages.
