David L. Gallup, a paymaster for the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad, established a headquarters along the construction right-of-way in 1880. The railroad workers began "going to Gallup" to get their pay; thus a town was born and named in 1881. Train 698 comes into Gallup for a crew change on July 23, 1988. The first three engines are 7427, 7414, and 5139.
