I got ahold of some great old photos and had to post them. I love railroads! This is the Mexican Canyon Trestle. I met a gentleman last year that was a volunteer at the Malpais and we got to talking about trains. He told me that he rode this train as a child. His father was an engineer and they would run logs down to Alamogordo every day. What a great history.
This is the train depot in Cloudcroft. I love the attire. It looks like an outdoor pavillion.
Another colorized view of the same area.
I have a post of the trestle as it looks today. It hasn't changed much.
This one is labeled The Toboggan Road. It seems to be a photo of the back side of the train station. I am sure you could still find it. The name sounds familiar to me.
