    This crooked-line railroad is one of my favorite railroads in America, showing me a inspiration of Thomas and Friends; for example, 2 0-6-2T’s that were passenger engines reminded me of a number of twins I’ve seen like Donald & Douglas and Bill & Ben. As for the mallet, truly an amazing locomotive that could have been a solution for urgent freight, cutting off costs and save lots of time. Even the steepest climbs around the mountain remind me of Gordon’s Hill, The Difficult Bend and Misty Island curves. I never thought at first that the URY was so crooked until I began to know it very well by studying and learning how could a narrow gauge railway get crooked.

    A must have for any Uintah fan. Neat footage of the railroad with their articulated locomotives when brand new and at work on Baxter Pass. See the only known footage of a Shay on the railroad and see D&RGW 315’s sister, the 12, at work on the Uintah before going to the Eureka & Palisade.
