San Pedro & Southwestern Railroad

This small line runs on an ex Southern Pacific branch from Benson south. They have some freight business, and had a passenger train using some California Western (Skunk) equipment. While I've not been there for some time (obviously!) I did find a photo on of their current power. I'll have to make a trip that way soon.

Would you like prints of most any of these slides? Go to for details!
