Description

    Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad "Time Table" 1876 - On March 1, 1876, the line reached Pueblo, Colorado. The railroad was especially excited about this accomplishment since rich coal mines in the area would ensure a steady stream of goods passing from west to east. From there, the railroad turned its sights south. It wanted to reach Santa Fe to open up grade. So did the Denver & Rio Grande. The race was on to conquer Raton Pass, a strategic location on the route. Through legal maneuvers, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe acquired the rights to lay track. Finally D&RG was confined to Colorado, while the ATSF built into the southwest.
    This very early two sided "time table" from 1876. They advertise six hundred miles of River, Plain and Mountain scenery. The great Southern Route through Kansas. They have vignettes of many places. Arkansas Canon, beautiful full length plains vignette, Garden of the God's, etc. Folds out; approximately 31" x 11.5".
