It’s kind of interesting to see the abandoned railroad beds in parts of New Mexico way out in the open ranchland areas. You’ll see mostly flat land with the raised areas that once held rails. It took so much labor to move all that dirt and lay all that track. In several sources it is written that Chinese labor was used a lot in New Mexico. Today there are descendants of those same immigrant workers living there.
