Uintah Railway : The Gilsonite Route by Henry E., Jr. Bender - Hardcover (August 1995) ~ Uintah Railway : The Gilsonite Route

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."

Uintah Railway Pictorial: Volume 2 - Atchee to Watson ~ by Rodger Polley  - source #2 < look for Vol 2.
Uintah Railway Pictorial: Volume 2 - Atchee to Watson
"From Mack, located at 4,541 feet in elevation, it was an upgrade pull to reach Baxter Pass at 8,437 feet. It was all down hill to Watson at the lower elevation of 5,351 feet. This required motive power capable of negotiating the sharp curves and steep grades encountered on the pass. Slow-moving Shays geared locomotives handled freight shipments efficiently up and down the pass until two big articulated locomotives were placed in service during 1926 and 1929, which cut down on the running time. .....The railroad's extension between Dragon and Watson during 1911 produced additional tonnage for the line, as mines opened up on new ore claims at Rainbow, Thimble Rock and other locations. ... The story concludes with a never-before published history from Watson to Vernal, Utah, with a proposed extension to the Cowboy Mine."

West Virginia's Coal & Coke Railroad: A B&0 Predecessor ~ by Alan Clarke

"Built by Henry Gassaway Davis - the Grand Old Man of West Virginia at the turn of the 20th century - the 175-mile-long C&C railroad connected Charleston, WV, with Elkins in the mountains to the northeast. The route was intended to connect with George Gould's planned transcontinental railroad. Instead, a change in plans took the C&C through rugged country rich in coal, oil, and timber, and led to the development of many towns and villages in central West Virginia. This history book is based on day-to-day correspondence among the managers of the line to tell the story of railroading in the Mountain State."  ~ Motorbooks International
