RAILROAD NOTES |
The Santa Fe expects in the
near future to commence some
extensive track work on the
line running south from Bar
stow. The line will be rebal
lasted and placed in first class
condition in every way for the
heavy winter traffic which the
road will be subjected to, it be
ing used jointly by the Santa
Fe and Salt Lake roads.
It has been learned from offi
cials of the road that the East
ern Oklahoma division oT the
Santa Fe will be known hence
forth as the main freight line
between Chicago and Kansas
City to Oklahoma and Texas
points. The former main line
running south through Arkan
sas City, Guthrie and Oklaho
ma will be used for passenger
and local freight service. The
eastern Oklahoma line was con
structed with this point in view.
It runs byway of Pawnee, Still -
j water and Shawnee, to Paul’s
I Valley.
Within three weeks the new
Santa Fe Railroad hospital in
Los Angeles will be completed
and opened for use. There is a
probability that it will be used
jointly by the Santa Fe, South
ern Pacific and Salt Lake roads,
as the two latter roads have no
hospital buildings there. The
buildings are of the old mission
style, cost $200,000. and are
seven in number, being connect
ed with covered passages which
may be thrown open when the
w 7 eather permits. The grounds
cover three acres, and altogeth
er it is the finest hospital in the
west.
The telegraphone. the newly
invented instrument for use in
telephoning over telegraph
wires, has been installed on the
Santa Fe Central Railway for
some time past as an experi
| ment and has been found suc
cessful. The instrument has
been adopted on parts of the
Southern Pacific and other big
systems for use in handling
trains to the exclusion of the
telegraph instrument and its re
liability has been demonstrated.
There are telegraphones in use
in the trainmaster's office of the
Santa Fe Central in Santa Fe
and at Kennedy, Moriartv, An
telope Springs and Torrance,
and they have been found a
great convenience by officers of
the system and others.
The belief is growing among
railroad men that Chief Engi
neer R. B. Burns, of the coast
lines of the Santa Fe, has quit
the line for good. 11l health is
assigned for the leave of ab
sence, but it is thought the ex
tremely onerous duties that have
fallen to the chief engineer in
the past two or three years, is
the cause of his retirement.
The friends of C. A. Morse,
who is temporarily filling the
place of Mr. Burns, believe he
will ultimately be appointed to
the position. He is well quali
fied for the place as he has been
assistant engineer on the lines
east of Albuquerque and for a
year, during the absence of W.
B. Story, filled the position of
chief engineer. Albuquerque
Citizen.
The first of the new engines
built especially for the New
Mexico division of the Santa Fe
by the Baldwin Locomotive
Works arrived in Albuquerque
this morning. The engine w r as
in charge of Engineer Blevins,
of Las Vegas. The train that
the engine hauled to this city
weighed exactly 1.150 tons, the
weight the new engines are
guaranteed to haul.
Engine 1601 is the first one of
twenty of the sixteen-hundred
class that have been purchased
|by the Santa Fe for use be
tween this city and Las Vegas.
The engines weigh 140 tons and
are fitted with all the latest ap
pliances known to engine con
j struction.
Announcement has also been
made that the Santa Fe will
add seven new engines of the
twelve-hundred class, used ex
clusively for passenger service
between this city and Las Ve
gas, to those already on hand.
These engines are built for
speed and it was one of this
class that was used to haul the
Walter Scott special from Albu
querque to Las Vegas.
The addition of these engines
is said to be only a starter of
the vast improvements to the
other kinds of equipment the
Santa Fe is to make to its lines
in New Mexico and Arizona. —
Albuquerque Citizen, Septem
ber 12th.
W. R. Campbell has been out
at Bruchman’s trading post this
week doing some surveying.
