Product Information

Silver Rails tells the story of four railroads, the Denver & Rio Grande, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, the Colorado Midland, and the Denver, South Park & Pacific, as they battled the mountains, weather, finances and each other to access the wealth that was pouring from Leadville's mines. This is also the story of the laborers, railroaders and empire builders who endured avalanches, fires, accidents, angry stockholders, financial ruin and even murder to build and operate the railroads that helped put the magic in the "Magic City" of Leadville.
