What can I say about this one? I would think that everyone interested in narrow gauge, mountains, Colorado, and old timey writing should own this book. I had a copy back when I was a young teen...this and Maine Two Footers were my favorites. The subjects contained have been throughly explored by newer authors and the photos have been pretty much shown time and time again. But still, this is the ONE book that narrow gaugers can call "comfort food for the mind".

Prices are low these days but the book is worth more, it is one of the first of the genre. I lost my original copy years ago, had another later and lent it to somebody, and now have an autographed copy left to me by my friend Muj. Every once in a while, I get it out and look at the wonderful photos and read the delightful verbage. Narrow Gauge in the Rockies...it is what it is.

Hi Woodie,

Is that the book by Lucius Beebe & Charles Clegg ?.

About $11.50 upwards in US, over 30 bucks over here for what looks like the same book ! (excluding postage !).

Yep, Beebe & Clegg. The link to ABE has a search field, never happened before. Oh well, it's a great old book anyway.

Thanks Woodie; I'll try our public library service - hopefully they'll have forgotten about my old fines by now.
