just the ticket

Dense, informative reference book. It's like a university science text but for historians and modellers of not only the RGS but Colorado in general.
DART-SKRIMER
Very well written, plenty of photographs with captions. The author did some really great research to be able to write a history like this.
Steep
Aost definitive writing on the RGS. Pictures are great!
Rare
Excellent collection of photographs and written history of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad. Many of the photographs are absolutely stunning as well as a comprehensive pictorial record of the history of the RGS and a comprehensive series of photographs of the rolling stock, the buildings and the countryside through which the railroad passed.
Blackseeker
Wonderful book. Very good one volume treatment of the RGS. The subject is covered very well and the photos are also very apt.

Silver San Juan is simply the best single book on the Rio Grande Southern that you can get!
Silver San Juan tells a fairly complete story of this narrow gauge railroad; how and why it was built, the life and times of the line, and its' eventual demise. It covers the line from North to South and touches on all the branches in between.
Plus, it includes detailed rosters and photos of the locomotives and rolling stock of this little railroad that you simply cannot get anywhere else.
The colorful life of the "Southern" could fill thousands of pages. But, if you had to tell the story in a single volume, you couldn't do it better than this book does.
All in all, this is the single most important book in any Rio Grande Southern fan's library.
If you own one book on the RGS, this has to be it.
