Post subject:  Steam Returns to Como Colorado commemorative book

20 page 8 1/2 X 11 booklet commemorating the return of an operating steam locomotive to Como Colorado on August 19, 2017

Book includes information and photos on the history of Como and its railroad as well as the train itself, including narrow gauge locomotive Klondike Mines Railway No. 4 and gondola GB&L 1020 (a former Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge car later used as a passenger car on the Georgetown Loop Railroad) and the project to rebuild track and return a locomotive to Como.

Located in Colorado's famed South Park, Como was a division point on the narrow gauge Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad (later the Colorado & Southern) from 1881 until 1937. The last C&S train left Como in 1938, taking up the rails as it went.
