Tracking Rocky Mountain Railroad Club Excursions 1987–1990

Author(s): Mike Butler
The Rocky Mountain Railroad Club is one of the nation's premier rail fan clubs. Since its founding in Denver in 1938, the Club has hosted countless excursions, published books, and printed a monthly newsletter.

The Club celebrated its golden anniversary in 1988 and is still going strong today with members across the nation and from around the world. This book commemorates excursions of the Club from 1987 to 1990, centered around the anniversary year of 1988. With photographs, maps, and historic Club brochures, the author recalls trips on rail lines that no longer exist such as the Cadillac and Lake City Railroad and the Wyoming-Colorado Railroad, as well as glorious trips on Amtrak to Glenwood Springs and the Grand Canyon.

A brief history of each rail line is included with the excursions. As the Club journeys onward to its 100th birthday in 2038, rail fans can enjoy this glimpse of past excursions and dream of ones to come.
