From the depths of the Pecos archives!

On July 23, 2014, I ran a post of B. Smith’s Pecos, TX maps.  Well, B. Smith has found another treasure–a hand drawn map of almost the entire Pecos Valley Southern RR (c. 1970-2012).

Astute observers may have noticed two RSD 4 locomotives on the map.  In case you wondered why there is RSD 4 noted in two places on the PVS map, there was an RSD 4 in Pecos for awhile.  It was the Rustler Springs sulphur plant switcher and someone planned to rebuild it.

It was first located at the west end of Pecos, as seen above.  Jan 1981

Stay tuned, rumor has it that B.Smith photo documented a PVS RR run a few days before Christmas of 1978.  Likely more Pecos goodies to come!
