1895 map of railroad from Fort Worth To Sierra Blanca. 153k
Here you find a cut from an 1895 Atlas showing the route of the
Railroad from Fort Worth to Sierra Blance. North is 20 degrees to the
right as we tilted the map to make it easier to follow the routes east
and west.

The towns along this route were aproximately 10 miles apart to furnish
the steam engines at that time water, and fuel for the boilers.

Today you'll note that many of the section house stops have disappeared.
It's very disappointing to attempt to identify these locations as only
the side tracks on the railroad are there today. [1999]
How many do you think have survived; 20% or possibly 30%?
