Lubbock to Crosbyton

The Crosbyton-Southplains Railroad

Picture 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!

Looking toward the end-of-line in Crosbyton. A turning wye, just beyond the gate, is visible in satellite imagery.

Chartered on April 6, 1910 and opening on April 10 the following year, the Crosbyton-South Plains Railroad stretched 38 miles from Lubbock eastward to Crosbyton, Texas. Four years later, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway purchased the line and renamed it to the South Plains and Santa Fe Railroad.

The line was sold to the newly-formed Crosbyton Railroad with purposes of continuing service in January, 1990, but the line was abandoned within the year.
