Mt. Sneffels Press is pleased to welcome the Ridgway Railroad Museum to its list of authors! Their new book, Narrow Gauge Railroading in the San Juan Triangle, can now be ordered from the Mt. Sneffels Press catalog.
 
In the summer of 2005 the Ridgway Railroad Museum approached David Mullings, the editor and owner of The Ouray Plaindealer and The Ridgway Sun, with a proposal to write semi-monthly columns for these two newspapers on topics relating to the narrow gauge railroading history of Ouray County. David agreed and the first article was published in the Ouray Plaindealer in October of 2005. Over the past three and a half years more than 40 of these articles have now been published.
 
The authors of these articles, who are all active members of the Ridgway Railroad Museum, include Tom Hillhouse (retired corporate attorney and Vice president of the Ouray County Historical Society), Rodney Holloway (Ridgway Railroad Museum volunteer and too young to retire), Bonnie Koch (retired elementary teacher and Ridgway Railroad Museum Educational Coordinator), Keith Koch (retired high school teacher and National Model Railroad Association Master Modeler), Don Paulson (retired college professor and Curator of the Ouray County Museum), Jim Pettengill (retired geologist and freelance writer), and Karl Schaeffer (retired railroad mechanical engineer and President of the Ridgway Railroad Museum).
