A History of Wyoming’s Railroads throughout Wyoming with wonderful old photographs and historical accounts. Travel back in time as author Robert A. King takes you on a journey dating back to the birth of the railroad in 1862 and ending in the late 1970s with the transport of precious minerals. This 128-page book is filled with over 100 old pictures from all over Wyoming and it has an index. Bob King maintained an interest in railroads of the Rocky mountains for several years, and spends some of his free time scouting out railroad ghost towns and trails, as well as digging through records filed away in museums and libraries around Wyoming. It was this desire to compile a story illustrating how the railroads impacted the settlement, grown and economy of Wyoming that lead to the publishing of this book, which is a “must have” for any railroad and history enthusiast!
