Another mystery narrow gauge picture:

Does anyone recognize this location or railroad? I picked it up on ebay, and it is a copy of a copy, so it is hard to tell. That "buy it now" button is going to kill me!

El Eliminero, I Think you might have a serious find. I am going to go over-the top here, and guess you are looking at Silver City, Pinos Altos and Mogollon RR #4 or 5 near the end of the line, up near Pinos Altos, in Southwestern New Mexico. The road was 24" gauge.

John-That was what I was hoping-the picture on ebay was very fuzzy so I thought Id take a chance. Turns out it isn't: it is a photo of the Little Bookcliff railroad and is a rather poor copy of a previously published pic. Cant win em all!
