Uintah Railway: the Gilsonite Route

Front Cover
Howell-North Books, 1970 - Technology & Engineering - 239 pages
Tells the story of the only railroad to penetrate the vast Uintah Basin of western Colorado and eastern Utah. The line was built almost exclusively to carry gilsonite, the glassy black asphaltum found nowhere else in the world. The Uintah had specially built equipment -- precursors of the Mallets -- which makes its story extremely interesting for a road of such moderate length. Includes 290 illustrations.
