Info on the Prescott & Eastern Railroad wanted
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, December 14, 2003 1:08 AM
I've been researching the Prescott & eastern and the Bradshaw Mountain Railway. Both subdivisions of the Santa Fe RR in Arizona.
I could use some help finding photos of locos and rollingstock and maps that would show the track plans of a few of the towns. like Crown King, Mayer, Poland and Poland Junction.
I am also interested in talking to anyone who Lives in the area and would like to explore and trace the old right-of-way.

I think you'll find what you want in railroad historian David Myrick's "Railroads of Arizona" series – I think there are five volumes in all. The publisher, at least of the later volumes, is Signature Press, an advertiser in MODEL RAILROADER and "Trains."

Happy holidays,

I used to live in AZ. There was a book about this railroad in the Tempe public library. I'm not sure if Dewey is anywhere near Tempe however. I model the Magma Az RR out of Superior.

I'm about 80 miles north of Tempe, but I do get down that way once in a while.
