This fourth volume of SPV's COMPREHENSIVE RAILROAD ATLAS OF NORTH AMERICA covers the states of Arizona and New Mexico, two states whose modern networks belie a rich heritage of abandoned grades which remain in mute testimony to the boom and bust cycles of the lumber and mining industries. For completeness, the DRGW lines in southern Colorado and connecting lines in west Texas are included. The Atlas shows all currently operated common carrier, tourist and major industrial railroads along with abandoned routes. Electric interurban and street railroads are not shown except where they provided common carrier freight service or operate over or adjacent to a common carrier's right of way. Lines shown as narrow or mixed gauge are only shown as such when they are currently so laid or were at abandonment. Lines built as narrow gauge and subsequently rebuilt are shown as standard gauge. It should be noted that some lines shown as 'in service' may see very infrequent use whilst some 'abandoned' lines may, if the tracks remain in place, be reactivated for a special movement. Some abandoned trackage is simplified or omitted to clarify existing details. Every effort has been made to show all current operating locations as defined in railroad employee timetables. Letter and symbol codes adjacent to each location give an indication of what facilities may be found there. The approximate location of all 'talking defect detectors', along with their identification, together with 'Controlled Points' and SP's 'Direct Traffic Control' blocks are shown as an aid to locating train movements which may be heard over the radio. Major bridges and tunnels (with length when over 1000') are also shown.
