I will finish the Delaware series soon, but I thought it is time to spend a little time out west again.
We will visit Pecos, Texas in the 1970s. The first part will focus on the operations of the ATSF. The ATSF ventured south of Carlsbad all the way down to Pecos in the 1970s.
The second part will feature the operations of Pecos Valley Southern (PVS) RR. The Pecos Valley Southern is still operating 23 miles of track south of Pecos.
Thanks to some great photography from a friend, we will visit both as they operated in the 1970 and 80s.
