History of the Uintah Rwy by John LePere


On March 11, 2017, John LePere gave an enlightening presentation on the History of the Uintah Rwy, described as:

A small weird narrow gauge railroad in eastern Utah and Western Colorado called the Uintah RR.  It included 5 miles of 7.5 ℅ grade and some of the sharpest curves ever laid.  It also links Ute Indians, a manipulated Congress and remotely Henry Ford. It began with a mineral discovery shortly after the civil war and continued until just before WW II.
