Southwest Chief: Lamy (LMY - mile 1,274) to Albuquerque (ABQ - mile 1,341)

Because of the topography around Santa Fe, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad mainline never actually went through the final city in it's name. Instead, it had a station at Lamy, NM and a short line was constructed north into Santa Fe. Lamy exists primarily as a railroad junction and has very few residents, but it does have an Amtrak station, along with some vintage railcars celebrating the rail town's past.

Proceeding southwest into Albuquerque, the sun came out and gave a nice sheen to the fresh snowfall on the barren landscape.
