Today one man is specially recognized as one of the founders of the narrow gauge railroad preservation movement in the United States. He is Robert W. Richardson, who with a friend started the Narrow Gauge Motel in a remote section of Colorado in 1949. Later he and a friend began the Narrow Gauge Museum in Alamosa, which helped initiate the safekeeping of narrow gauge rolling stock, hardware and paper memorabilia. The collection he and Cornelius Hauck started, now housed at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, has grown so large it requires a number of staff and volunteers to catalog and maintain. In this nostalgic volume, Bob recounts his early days as an editor, advertising coordinator, member of the U.S. Armed Forces, motel owner and later as head of the largest narrow gauge railroad museum in the country. Primarily, it highlights Bob's life as an avid narrow gauge fan during the last two decades the Colorado Narrow Gauge still operated as a common carrier. Hardbound, 12 x 9 1/2, 200 pages, 267 color and black/white photographs, maps, charts and ephemera.
