Goin' Railroading by Margaret Coel
Book DescriptionIn this book first published in 1985, Margaret Coel's father recounts his own experiences and those of his father and brothers in taking the trains through the mountains and across the plains of Colorado. He tells of the everyday hazards railroaders faced: long hours and backbreaking labour, winter blizzards and bitter temperatures, faulty brakes and runaways down the mountainside. He tells of the courage and dedication, and often gallantry the men and their families brought to the task of keeping the trains running. And he tells of the great adventure that was railroading for nearly a century, when trains ran to almost every town in Colorado and everyone rode the trains.
