Lordsburg to Hachita

The Lordsburg-Hachita Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

Historic ICC Abandonment Filings

Docket Number: 10090 Date: 7/25/1933 Section: 1
App. of Arizona and New Mexico Ry. Co. and Southern Pacific Co., its lessee, for certificate to abandon that part of the Lordsburg-Hachita Branch between Hachita and Oil Siding, a distance of 37.6 miles, in Hidalgo and Grant Counties, New Mexico.
Length: 37.6 miles Citation: 193 ICC 603  

Subnote states this line crosses the Phelps - Dodge Corporation line, "still active today". The terrain mode of the map clearly shows the rails of this said line have been removed from just past the bridge spanning I-10 to the terminus at an apparently abandoned complex.
