Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Little Book Cliff Railway was a narrow gauge railroad that operated in Colorado, United States, from 1889 to 1925. The LBC was incorporated on September 11, 1889, by William Thomas Carpenter and several other prominent Grand Junction, Colorado, business men. The purpose of the 12-mile narrow gauge railroad was to haul coal from the Book Cliff mines owned by Carpenter to Grand Junction. Construction began in 1890 and progressed in sections until the rails finally reached Carpenter, Colorado, which was the station name applied to the Book Cliff mines' coal camp, in the third week of June 1892.show more
