Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
Williams, Arizona (Williams Junction)
November 26, 1995

At Williams Junction (about 3 miles east of Williams, Arizona) the Santa Fe's Crookton Cutoff returns to the original alignment of the pre-1960 main, and joins the remaining stub of the old line through Williams to Ash Fork to provide access to the Peavine branch to Phoenix. Here, sporting a fine assortment of classic Santa Fe signals, we see the old main (now part of the Peavine) in the foreground with the double-track Crookton Cutoff behind.
