The book covers the D&I's corporate history , the route and schedule, the cars, shops and power system, its influence on economic development in the area, notable events in its history, and the reasons for tis abandonment. The route provided quick and easy transportation from 1908 until automobiles, jitneys, and buses put it out of business in 1926
Perfect book delivered better than promised. Book was basically brand new!!!!. The information presented was good for die-hard interurban fans Text was well thought out. Photos were interesting, but many have appeared elsewhere -- not much new here. The miscellaneous graphics (timetables, etc.) were distracting. The layout of the book made it difficult to read. The information presented was good for die-hard interurban fans.. Five Stars A great history of the Denver Interurban.
