Fascinating and detailed history Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek District Railway, familiarly known as the Short Line. The Cripple Creek gold rush of 1891 created a need for railroads to serve this boom town which swelled to 50,000 souls nearly overnight and competed with Denver for the state capital. Here is the story of the standard-gauge railroad that made its way into the near-exclusive narrow-gauge domain of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. The Short Line utilized proven engineering methods to cut an impressive route to Cripple Creek. So impressive in fact that, when then Vice-president Theodore Roosevelt traversed the route in 1901, he is crediting with saying that it was a "trip that bankrupts the English language." When abandoned in the 1920s, the track was removed and the route was converted to the Corley Mountain Highway, an early tourism endeavor that survives today as the famous Gold Camp Road. With vintage ephemera. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and fifteen color postcards. With detailed rosters of interurban electric cars and bibliography. Includes a laid-in packet of specially drawn maps that includes: Colorado Springs Station grounds; Clyde and vicinity; St. Peters and Duffields; and a CS&CCD Travel folder reproduction. 180 pages with index.

Hard to find book. Biking/hiking this stretch of ground and reading on history is unforgettable experience

This is a great book of the Short Line to Cripple Creek. It is slick paper, hardback, and has many wonderful photos of the railroad and Cripple Creek. Much Cripple Creek history is included by this author, who also wrote Florence and Cripple Creek. Both are outstanding books.

If you like mountain railroading and are going to the Colorado Springs-Cripple Creek area, buy this book and drive the Gold Camp Road, accessed by the Old Stage Road near the Broadmoor. It is so fascinating to see what was and, now, what is. Many photos of scenes now extinct because of new strip mining technology.

Great book.
