Union Pacific Railroad and the Teton Valley Branch is a slim but detailed book that gives a thorough insight into the history of the railroad branch that ran from Ashton to Victor in the twentieth century.

The author, Thornton Waite, lives in Idaho Falls and has written extensively on the history of railroads in Idaho. In his new book chronicling the Teton Valley Branch, he draws from sources including the Teton Valley News, the Teton Peak Chronicle of Ashton, the Jackson Hole Model Railroaders, private photo collections, and the Valley of the Tetons Library’s robust historical archive.
