This Short Line Blue Book is in what I would consider to be a very Good shape, but it has traces of the following "issues"; Paper Tear at upper right on front cover and next page / slight Discoloration here and there / Writings in terms of lines or some sort of text on a few pages / Smudges, Smears & Spots / Wrinkled Paper. For me this is one of the clearly really better looking ones, even if it of course has what I would call the "been in use" look!
The Book consist of 76 pages including front and back page, but only 72 of them is numbered. This issue is Volume 5, Number 1 and is dated April 1, 1905. 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. After all, these books can be hard to find, and sometimes quite expensive! This issue was among those with some cost to it, as it did cost me USD 66.42 with shipping to Norway through a friend as it turned out to be the most economical solution, bought Christmas Eve 2021.
