A Raton Mountain Railway Journal details the AT and SF’s famed passage from Trinidad, CO to Raton, NM. Beginning in prehistoric times, author Daniel E. Seward brings the story up to the early 1970s and Amtrak. Included are other rail lines in the area: Colorado and Southern, Denver and Rio Grande, several coal short lines and even the Trinidad street railway. Renowned locomotive historian Lloyd Stagner’s From Newton to New Mexico in the Steam Era: The Santa Fe Northern District 1909-1953 outlines AT and SF locomotive practices, operations and assignments. This is complemented by Northern District Steam Panorama, an overview by another authority on steam locomotives in the West, Cornelius Hauck. “Corny” also covers the steam era shops and activity at the division point of La Junta in La Junta: The Santa Fe’s Colorado Connection. Farther west, Gordon Basset’s Desert Main Line: The Santa Fe in Arizona surveys AT and SF across the northern part of the Sunset state. Emphasis is on history and operations before 1950, including the remote mainline telegraph at Nelson. Over 350 illustrations, maps and timetables, many in color.
