  • [04.08.2022] - The Short Line Blue Book, June 1912

    This book is in what I would consider to be mostly an OK shape, but it has following issues; Edge Wear / Corner Folds / Color Missing in Spots on Cover / Wrinkled Paper / Smudges, Smears & Spots / Discoloration / Staple Rust, Slightly. There is also sadly a hole around the upper staple on the cover pages. It clearly has the what I would call "been in use" look!

    The Book consist of 68 pages including front and back page, but only 64 of them is numbered. This issue is Volume 13, Number 6 and is dated June 1912. It contains pages filled with advertisements, various railroads timetables, images and text for not only the Short Line, but most of the larger area extending to all of Colorado for some pieces of info.

    The views are mostly from along the Short Line trip, and is mostly the same used over and over in the various issues of the Short Line Blue Book, but there are other views to, mostly from ads and other nice scenery items meant to showcase something.

    I hope you enjoy sort of reading this book by browsing these images, as I do find enjoyment in the fact that I am able to share it here for all to see/find. animated smile After all, these books can be hard to find, and sometimes quite expensive! This issue though was among the cheaper ones as it did cost me USD 37.95 with shipping to Norway through a friend as the direct cost through the eBay system was too costly, bought in middle of October 2021.

  • [28.07.2022] - The Short Line Blue Book, August 1911

    This Book is mostly in good shape, all pages still connected, hold together by staples that has slight evidence of rust. No tears but it has spots/stains, especially in the first part, and has what I would call "been in used" marks. Front and back cover has some small spots where the blue color is lost, some traces of corner folds and paper has extra fold at center where the staples are, and, there is slight hints of the starting of larger holes around the staples.

    The Book consist of 68 pages including the front and back pages, but only 64 of them is numbered. This issue is Volume 12, Number 8, and contains pages of ads, various railroads timetables, images and text for not only the Short Line, but most of the larger area extending to all of Colorado for some pieces of info.

    The views are mostly from along the Short Line trip, and is for the most part the same used over and over in the various issues of the Short Line Blue Book, but there are other views to, mostly from ads or to try showcase nice scenery among the text pieces to tell of various sights. Quality on the images are not the best due to the 'printed on paper' nature of them and the use of not the highest quality paper.

  • [22.05.2016] - The Short Line Blue Book, July 1902

    This book is in what I would consider to be a great shape. But, it has its "been in use" marks, the front cover has some slight lighter discoloration along the top edge. Some pages also has some grayish smudges/discolorations, and there are some extra folds or sort of crack in the paper on a tiny few pages. There are also some of the later pages that has started to crack at the fold in the bottom, but this is clearly among the better looking ones!

    This issue of the Short Line Blue Book is Volume 2, Number 4, and contains 100 pages with the covers, with numbering from page 4 till page 98. The pages are filled with various text pieces, small news items, humor type of text, and of course ads, timetables, images and text for not only the Short Line, but most of the larger area extending to all of Colorado for some pieces of info

    The views are mostly from along the Short Line trip, and is mostly same used over and over in the various issues of the Short Line Blue Book, but there are other views to, mostly from ads, but also used in text to try showcase other nice scenery items. Sadly the quality of the views is bad due to the paper and size which is rather small for the most part.

    I hope you enjoy sort of reading this book by browsing these images, as I do find enjoyment in the fact that I am able to share it here for all to see/find. animated smile After all, these books can be quite hard to find, and expensive, for instance, this issue here did cost me a whopping USD 127.50 + shipping on eBay back in late January 2013, and I had lost another copy of this issue for a even higher cost in May 2009...
