Hugh Coffin Memorial Library ➔ Rio Grande Secret Places: Ruby Canyon and the Desert

Hugh Coffin Memorial Library

Storage Location:
Some of the most magnificent main line railroading anywhere can be found in the western Colorado - eastern Utah desert country. A detailed and photographic history of the route is presented for the first time in R.C. Farewell-s Rio Grande Secret Places, Volume II, which portrays both the desert and its Ruby Canyon in spectacular fashion. Pictorial emphasis is on Rio Grande, Southern Pacific and Union Pacific operation in recent years, but a few rare D and RGW steam views are included. Three-dimensional maps highlight key areas. There is coverage of many miles of alignment that were graded but never used and of obscure desert tidbits such as the Ballard and Thompson Railroad.
