3 Days - 20 Bucks


In an era when railfans donned suit and tie to chase trains, carried their trusty Brownie and Speed Graphic cameras, and counted their exposures more carefully than their lunch money, a young Stan Rhine ponied up his 20 bucks and joined the fun. For the first time in print, he tells the story of the start-of-summer weekend rail jaunts sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Railroad Club in the 1950's and 60's. He also touches on some of the club's other narrow gauge excursions and, as a bonus, gives us the story of the last narrow gauge passenger train movement from Alamosa.
