This Date in Railroad History


September 20, 1930
The Alamogordo and Sacramento Mountain Railway ran the last of its regular excursion trains to Cloudcroft, New Mexico, serving the Cloudcroft Lodge which was built by the railroad as a popular escape from the Alamogordo area summer heat. The railroad started from Alamogordo Junction on the Southern Pacific, and in the first 19 miles climbed from 4,372 feet elevation at Alamogordo to 7,580 feet. Grades exceeded five percent, with one half-mile stretch of over six percent. Phelps Dodge and Company had purchased the line in 1905 and it was later sold to the SP. The tracks were removed in 1947, but in Cloudcraft, the The Lodge continues as a sucessful resort today.
