Hopefully, this isn't old news, but I just found out from the Kalmbach
Library that *the* reference on the Uintah has been reprinted.  Here's the
information regarding the reprint gleaned from the promo sheet that they
sent me (asterisks surround text that is italicized):

    *Uintah Railway* by Henry E. Bender Jr., is being reprinted in
  hardbound book form and offered by Heimburger House Publishing Company, a
  leading publisher of railroad books and magazines.  The 10-chapter book,
  reprinted on enamel paper for excellent photographic reproduction, is
  being made available in *limited quantities*.
    The 240-page deluxe laminated-cover volume contains 290 photographs,
  maps, elevation drawings, profile, income statements, index, notes and
  rosters...

    The new book contains an updated passenger car roster and an Addenda
  and Errata sheet that corrects errors and adds additional information not
  in the first edition.
    The *Uintah Railway* features a four-color cover illustration of one of
  the Mallets, is 8 1/2 x 11" and sells for $39.95 plus $4.00 shipping,
  direct from the publisher, or at better hobby shops and rail museum gift
  shops.  Illinois residents should add 7.75% sales tax on direct orders.

I just phoned in my order and they said it would probably go out 4th class
book rate the next day.  Here's how to contact Heimburger House:
