In between, Farewell covers the daily op- erations of the D&RGW as an indepen- dent entity, following it through the merger with the Southern Pacific and the ensuing infiltration of wide-cab black and scarlet AC power into Col- orado and Utah, and finally its ulti- mate absorption into the Union Pacific system as Armour Yellow becomes the dominant color on the line.

Farewell’s photos effectively illus- trate the text describing trends in typi- cal traffic patterns and information on individual trains and their evolution throughout the merger years, such as the short-and-fast Railblazer, various locals, the Zephyr, and the Ski Train. In addition to the nuts and bolts de- tails, he also discusses the how and whys of the railroad’s evolution includ- ing interchange traffic with other rail- roads, competitors’ routes, and finan- cial performance.

The landscapes featured in the book are themselves nothing short of stun- ning. The winter shots from the front range and tunnel district were the eye- catchers the first time I flipped through the pages, but all four seasons are well represented in these photos. Much of the Rio Grande’s most scenic territory runs well off the beaten path through the rugged canyons of the Colorado and Arkansas Rivers, and these spots are also well-documented, with many cliff- top shots looking down upon the train that are likely to give those with a fear of heights second thoughts about rail- fanning the line. In many locations, the author’s own photographs are aug- mented by the fine work of Richard Loveland, who joined Farewell on nu- merous trips throughout the region.
