Today I began editing a story for the Weber State University Story Telling Festival that shares the history of the Bamberger Rail Line's passenger service to the Lagoon Resort. In 1891 the railroad company was built by Simon Bamberger and grew to offer passenger and freight service from Salt Lake City to Ogden, Utah. It was considered one of the most efficient inter-urban lines operating during the early 20th century. To give passengers an additional incentive to use the line, Bamberger made a stop in Farmington, Utah and invested in a nine acre resort named Lagoon, which still exists to this day. Here are a few photographs I was able to find at the Utah State Historical Society of the Bamberger and the Lagoon resort during that era.
