Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe [Burlington Northern Santa Fe]
Seligman, Arizona (West Seligman)
October 23, 1998
West of Seligman, Arizona the Santa Fe's right of way has to cross a small hump along the south end of Chino Point. Evidently Santa Fe found this an annoying obstacle, as it eventually added a second track chiseled out of the underlying sandstone for eastbound trains. Here a westbound uses the old line, with the newer eastbound cut in the foreground.
