The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad had two unconnected sets of tracks. The early history of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad before 1885 included several bancruptcies and building of eastern and central branches in Missouri and Oklahoma.
The Santa Fe Railroad made arrangements that led to the southwestern branch of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad being built from Isleta (near Albuquerque), [[New Mexico Genealogy|New Mexic] to Flagstaff, [[Arizona Genealogy|Arizon], to Needles (connecting to Los Angeles), [[California Genealogy|Californi] in 1885, and to eventual takeover of those tracks. These tracks eventually became the main route from Albuquerque to Los Angeles for the transcontinental service of the [[Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway|Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railwa].
The southwestern branch of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad route from east to west included:
- Albuquerque, [[New Mexico Genealogy|New Mexic]
- Grants, New Mexico
- Holbrook, [[Arizona Genealogy|Arizon]
- Winslow, Arizona
- Flagstaff, Arizona
- Needles, [[California Genealogy|Californi]
- Barstow, California
- Los Angeles, California
Settlers and Records
Settlers along this route were most likely from Midwestern states like [[Illinois Genealogy|Illinoi], [[Iowa Genealogy|Iow], [[Missouri Genealogy|Missour], [[Kansas Genealogy|Kansa], or [[Colorado Genealogy|Colorad]. They would have settled in [[New Mexico Genealogy|New Mexic], [[Arizona Genealogy|Arizon], or [[California Genealogy|Californi].
No known passenger records for the Atlantic and Pacific or [[Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway|Atchison, Topeka, and Santa F] railroad exist.
