Utah Ghost Rails

Stephen L. Carr and Robert W. Edwards

Western Epics Publications

Utah

As there are ghost towns in Utah, there are ghost railroads, a line that has run the course of its existence. Ghost rails are helpful in developing an understanding of why lines are built where they are and how railroads are pertinent to the economy of the state. More engaging, though, is the sense of abandonment that comes from standing on a vacant roadbed where once twin rails lay, over which passed thousands of trains carrying hundreds of thousands of passengers and millions of tons of freight, and which is now a thin streak of black cinders in the sand.
