History

The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad had two unconnected sets of tracks. The early history of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad before 1885 included several bancruptcies and building of eastern and central branches in Missouri and Oklahoma.

The Santa Fe Railroad made arrangements that led to the southwestern branch of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad being built from Isleta (near Albuquerque), New Mexico to Flagstaff, Arizona, to Needles (connecting to Los Angeles), California in 1885, and to eventual takeover of those tracks.[1] These tracks eventually became the main route from Albuquerque to Los Angeles for the transcontinental service of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway.

Route

The southwestern branch of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad route from east to west included:

  • Albuquerque, New Mexico
  • Grants, New Mexico
  • Holbrook, Arizona
  • Winslow, Arizona
  • Flagstaff, Arizona
  • Needles, California
  • Barstow, California
  • Los Angeles, California[2]

Settlers and Records

Settlers along this route were most likely from Midwestern states like Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, or Colorado. They would have settled in New Mexico, Arizona, or California.

No known passenger records for the Atlantic and Pacific or Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe railroad exist.
