Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain Railway
Abstract
Financial information generated during the operation of the Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain Railway.
Scope and Content
The Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain Railway records consist of balance sheets, accounts receivable ledgers, vouchers, and voucher indexes. These contain information primarily on the railroad's finances, but with some references to operation. Researchers also are advised to consult records of the El Paso and Southwestern System (component lines, New Mexico Railway and Coal Company, and the Alamagordo Lumber Company).
History / Biographical
The Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain Railway was incorporated on March 21, 1898 to run from Alamagordo Junction, New Mexico, on the line of the El Paso Northeastern Railway, east to the Sacramento Mountain timber stands. Eventually the line was completed 31-1/2 miles to Russia, New Mexico, where it connected with the tracks of the Alamagordo Lumber Company. The Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain was constructed by the New Mexico Railway and Coal Company (later the El Paso and Northeastern Company). Phelps Dodge acquired the line in 1904 and made it a part of the El Paso and Southwestern System. In 1924 the Southern Pacific acquired the EP & SW and with it the Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain. The Southern Pacific continued to operate the Alamagordo and Sacramento Mountain until 1947 when it abandoned the line.

History / Biographical
The Alameda & San Joaquin Railroad was incorporated on May 1, 1895 to serve the coal mines of the San Francisco & San Joaquin Coal Company at Corral Hollow, California. The 36.6 mile line ran from Tesla (located in the hills south of the Altamont Pass) to the Stockton waterfront. Construction began in 1895 and was completed in January 1897. On July 25, 1903 the line was sold to the Western Pacific Railroad (WP). The A&SJ was dissolved November 30, 1908. WP used the line from Carbona to Stockton as part of its main line. The rest became the Carbona branch. WP removed the branch between Tesla and Walden in April of 1916, from Walden to Carnegie in January 1918, and back to Moy in September 1921. The 4.2 mile section from Moy to Carbona remained in operation until cut back to Teekey (2.0 miles) in 1952. This remainder wes removed in the mid-1980s, leaving only a short spur off the main line. The Stockton law firm of Louttit, Woods & Levinsky was formed in 1885. In December of 1894 Samuel Davies Woods and Arthur L. Levinsky joined to become Woods & Levinsky. This firm represented the Alameda & San Joaquin Railroad. Mr. Levinsky went into solo practice after 1901. He also acted as claims attorney for the Stockton Electric Railway Company, the Stockton Division of the Southern Pacific Company, and the Central California Traction Company.
