Transportation to Ford Ranch, Galisteo, NM

All equipment was moved by truck from Reader, AR to Ford Ranch and return. A major winter storm hit New Mexico and Texas while equipment was on the move and the locomotive and cars were stranded in various locations across

Ford Ranch operations

38 inches of snow buried the town of Contention and the RR from the afternoon of Dec 28 through the day of Dec 30. It was 2 days before crews could start clearing the set and 2 more beyond that before I could start moving equipment onto the track. After clearing the the snow off the track the sun warmed the ground during the day and runoff from the surrounding snow created deep adobe mud. It would freeze at night when temps went below zero. This made for extremely difficult working conditions

The engine was kept hot 24 hours a day from Jan 11 to Jan 18, 2007.
