Some excellent historical accounts of the building and operation of the railroad along with a lot of other aspects of local history there can be found in "Pioneers of the San Juan Country" published in 1942. They may sell copies in some of the local bookstores or at the Animas Museum. If you're interested in the history around there I highly recommend it.

Robinstyler - how's the Animas Museum? I've not been through since it opened. I'd like to make a visit at some point. Am also hoping to get to the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis then as well.

It's been such a long time since I've been to the Animas Museum. I enjoyed it the last time I've been there, but I now they rotate their exhibits so I'm not sure what's on exhibit now.

Sorry I couldn't be more help

Looks like they did a nice job restoring the old school. I'm guessing my grandfather must have gone to school there as it was built in '04 and he was born in '09. Glad they were able to save the building.
