Uintah Railway Pictorial: Volume 1 - Mack to Atchee ~ by Rodger Polley 
Uintah Railway Pictorial: Mack to Atchee
"The picture story of the singularly unique Uintah Railway begins at Mack, Colorado, as this steam narrow-gauge line was constructing a hotel, office building and water tank during 1906. The arrival of new locomotives is illustrated, including numerous pictures of famous articulated engines Nos. 50 and 51. Their unique home-made Shay, No. 7, is shown. Various flatcars and gondolas, as-well-as cabooses, appear in service at this time. Gilsonite ore, the Uintah Railway's primary reason for existence, required warehouses for storage and interchange with the Denver & Rio Grande's standard-gauge line. The route across the unrelenting desert to the coal mine facilities at Carbonera is presented mile-by-mile--including cars being loaded at the coal tipple. Also included are train wrecks; graphically portrayed with historic photographs."

Union Pacific - Volume 1 - 1862 1893 ~ by Maury Klein               Union Pacific - Volume 1 - 1862 1893

"The Union Pacific Railroad is renowned as America’s first transcontinental railroad and is one of the strongest companies in the railroad industry today. The laying of the golden spike in Promontory, Utah, in 1869 marked not only the opening of the continent to settlement but also the transformation of the United States from an agricultural nation to an industrial one. Maury Klein, America’s foremost railroad historian, re-creates the powerful personalities and dramatic events that led to the construction of this legendary railroad. Fully illustrated with over one hundred historic photographs and maps, Union Pacific details the feat of engineering and human strength that conquered the terrain of the desert and mountains and also the colorful wheelings and dealings that were waged in executive boardrooms in New York and Boston and in the chambers of Congress as dreamers and scoundrels, politicians and patriots forged a pioneering enterprise in transportation ...the author takes a look at the history, operations, and equipment of the railroads that moved iron ore from mines in Minnesota and Northern Ontario to railroads on Lake Superior. Coverage includes the Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range, Burlington Northern, Soo Line, Canadian National, North Shore Mining and LTV operations; should appeal to both modelers and rail enthusiasts."

Union Pacific: Volume II, 1894-1969 ~ by Maury Klein      Union Pacific: Volume II, 1894-1969

"
The second volume in the history of the Union Pacific begins after the financial panic of 1893, one of the worst depressions Americans had yet experienced, which pushed the railroad into bankruptcy. Maury Klein examines the complex challenges faced by the Union Pacific in the new century—the expanding role of government and its restrictive regulations, the growth of labor unions, the devastating effects of two world wars, and the growing competition from new modes of transportation—and how, under the innovative and influential leadership of Edward H. Harriman, the Union Pacific again played the role of industrial pioneer. Union Pacific has remained one of the strongest railroads in the country, surviving the eras of government regulation and the corporate mergers of the past twenty-five years."

Union Pacific Official Color Photography Book 1by  Robert LeMassena and Robert J. Yanoseyi  Union Pacific Official Color Photography Book 1

"Straight from the UP Museum Archives. This 128 page hardcover book illustrates the very best camera work of UP company photographers. Many of these photos have remained unseen for more than half a century. The railroad’s photographic staff sought unusual scenic locations for remarkable views of the earliest UP “streamliners,” the oldest and newest steam locomotives and the modern look of handsome diesel and gas-turbine cabs."

Up Clear Creek On The Narrow Gauge: Modeling the Colorado & Southern by Harry W Brunk  Up Clear Creek On The Narrow Gauge: Modeling the Colorado & Southern

"...... a collection of 54 articles by the same title that originally appeared in the bi-monthly magazine, NARROW GAUGE AND SHORT-LINE GAZETTE. It is the story of the authors HOn3 scale model railroad. He based his Union Central and Northern layout on the Clear Creek District of the 3-foot gauge Colorado & Southern Railroad that ran from Golden, Colorado, to just beyond Silver Plume, Colorado. Although this book tells the story of the authors layout, it is not a "how-to-do-it" book. Rather it is a book of inspiration and motivation-the author has an infectious enthusiasm for his modeling and his subject. Thus Up Clear Creek is also a history book-modeling the C&S as it was in the late 1920s and early 1930s required a great deal of research. The history of the area is discussed in the text and reflected in the accurate modeling not only of the railroad and its equipment, but also of the houses, churches, mines, and businesses along the line. ...
