ATSF train leaving Willard, NM in 1943

In 1929, ATSF added a desk interlocking panel at Willard to control the 2 siding switches and the crossing of the New Mexico Central Railway. That railroad started in 1902 and was aquired by the Santa Fe in 1926. It operated from a connection with the EP&SW at Torrance (35 miles to the southeast) north to a connection at Kennedy (60 miles) with the ATSF line near Lamy.
