"Breese, Kneeland & Co., No. 73, Jersey City, 1857." This classic American Type 4-4-0 locomotive was built for the Milwaukee & Mississippi Railway Co. and served the area until 1889 when it became the No.1 engine on the Phelps Dodge line known as the Arizona and Southeastern Railroad Co. and later as the E.P. & S.W. This railway was extended into El Paso in 1903, the year No. 1 was retired from regular service.

The current Arizona & Eastern goes from Bowie, Az. to Globe, Az. I had made many deliveries from our shop in Phoenix, to the copper mines at Globe, before I retired, and sometimes saw some railroad activity.

Thanks Antlerlady
A little extra info on the line and engine: The Southern Pacific bought the line in 1924, but later sold it (I don't know when that happened). It's now known as the Arizona & Eastern and is owned by Genesee & Wyoming. The SP donated the locomotive to the El Paso Centennial Museum at the U. of Texas-El Paso.
