Alamogordo and Sacramento Mountain Railroad (3215)

Alamogordo and Sacramento Mountain Railroad (3215)
Near the top of the climb to Cloudcroft, there is a good view of the Mexican Canyon trestle that was used by the Alamogordo and Sacramento Mountain Railroad. It's difficult to believe the effort that was taken to build a railroad such as this in the late 1800's. The railroad operated from 1899 to 1947, and was built primarily to haul timber down the mountain, but there were also passenger excursion trains.

Best viewed as part of New Mexico set.
