Keith, Apache Ry hangs on. For how long though is anyone's guess. The people really didn't want to lose their railroad. A last minute perchaser came forward to save the RR line. https://www.railwayage.com/news/apache-railway-saved-by-last-minute-purchase/Robert, yes, the Apache Railway. That sounds right. I"d say it is right, and I was just wrong about the six axle units. My memory never has worked well. But Apache really rings a bell. I'm sure that's it, and I certainly was in that area then, in '02.
Sad to hear of the plant, and presumably then the line, closing down.
Don't know that I've ever seen a Baldwin diesel. Pretty cool.
I did also see a cinder mine while I was out there, somewhere. Don't remember much about it though. I think we came all the way up to the mine, so it wasn't a separate shortline. I guess that's the raw material for cinder blocks. I had never known why they were called that lol.
