Does anyone know any good sources for the Colorado and Southern Railroad online? It seems as though everybody spends their time with the more favoured Denver and Rio Grande  Cry

Thanks

There is a ton of stuff out there, just Google it and you will get lots of hits. There are lots of images as well and articles with images.  To get more specific you can narrow the search.

There may not be as much as on the D&RG, but Try this,  https://www.google.com/search?q=colorado+%26+southern+rr&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#q=colorado+%26+southern+rr&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=Dbu&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvns&source=lnt&tbs=img:1&sa=X&ei=IhJcT-ONN-7q2wXyo6j1Dg&ved=0CBUQpwUoAQ&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=5fcf911636768262&biw=1280&bih=883

also here is a partial list of books I used to have:
