By Allan C. Lewis

During the gilded age of rail travel in the late 1800s, Colorado Springs became one of the primary portals of westward expansion and a hub for both passenger and freight traffic. Over the thousands of miles of tracks traveled merchants, industrialists, tourists, and fortune seekers, all bent on enjoying what Colorado had to offer either on a temporary or permanent basis.

Author and railroad historian Allan C. Lewis has assembled a fascinating assortment of vintage images, many never before published, to tell the unique tale of railroading in the Pike’s Peak region. This 128 page, softcover book is published with Arcadia Press.
