La Junta
The real-life La Junta, Colorado was a both a junction and an important division point for ATSF. The Santa Fe's transcontinental trains exchanged their dining cars or had them serviced here. They also picked up sleeping cars that were moving to and from Denver. Railway Post Office cars or sealed mail storage boxcars that came from either coast with mail bound for Denver were set out here for pick up by a train that ran daily between Denver and La Junta.

We are not able to model La Junta at all, due to space restrictions, but our version of La Junta is still important. It contains signaling and interlocking routes, so the chance of collisions is minimized.

We hope in the next year to add a siding at La Junta that will allow us to set out mail, sleeping and dining cars for heading for Denver (lower level), Los Angeles (upper level) or Chicago/Salt Lake City (staging.)
