Railroad Station San Antonio New Mexico

san antonio rr staSanta Fe Railroad Station, San Antonio, New Mexico, United States.  This San Antonio was the birthplace of Conrad Hilton and site of the first Hilton Hotel.  But more importantly it’s the home of the Buckhorn Cafe with its fine green chile cheeseburgers.

    Oooh, I LOVE old railroad stations! And I love this photo!

  2. Terrific photograph-great building!

  3. I love this, too. It’s always interesting to see where the track may have gone, if it’s been pulled up. The old roadbed is usually easy to spot in the desert…roads run straight but railroads run/ran level. It’s fun spotting one in the desert shrubs.

    • This one is on the main line from Albuquerque to El Paso, but there is no functional station in San Antonio anymore – just freight trains. The pie-in-the-sky plan is to run a passenger line on these tracks from Denver to El Paso – it would be wonderful for our little desert towns. We do like the old unused roadbeds – great for hiking!

  4. Forget about Conrad Hilton…it’s those green chile burgers I’ve got a hankerin’ for!

    Green Chili Cheeseburgers, mmmmm. I like your treatment of this, there is so much background “stuff” around this so I’ve never used any of the shots I’ve taken.

  6. This is a fine old building. I drive past it several times a year going to and from Bosque del Apache.
