Pages 1-3 are just beginning to loosen. No other defects noted and remaining pages are flawless. Today's Denver and Rio Grande Western with the Moffat Tunnel and heavy 136 lb. rails on 4' 8 inch spacing is a far cry from the 30 lb. rails spiked to the three foot gauge in 1871. That was the year civil war General Palmer began building the Chili Line that was to end up in Espanola by 1880 The line was abandoned in 1941 and that loss of rail service affected not only Espanola, but the entire Rio Grande Valley in Northern New Mexico. Rail adventure has returned somewhat to the area with revival of tourist trains on the Antonito to Chama tracks. There is a conflict of editions between the title page which states this is the Second Edition commemorating the centennial year of the D&RGW 1871-1971. The reverse side, the copyright page, has the copyright 1969 and 1971 and printed by the Rio Grande Sun Press Espanola, New Mexico. Directly below is 'Third Edition, 1984, by Las Trampas Press, Espanola, N.M. by permission of the author. ' This seems to imply that the present book is a copy of the 1984 Edition. Included is the Preface for the First Edition as well as the Preface for the Second Edition. Eventually the chili Line was extended to Santa Fe and there were plans, never completed, to extend further south to Albuquerque. The rail line from Espanola to Santa Fe was plagued with mishaps and financial troubles that were never resolved. Here is the complete story illustrated with drawings, photographs, and documents.
