I third Steve's recommendation of Temple. Craig is very responsive and your collection fits their mission of preserving the Santa Fe. I have already sent them several items that fall outside my era.

I would second Steve's suggestion of Temple. It is a
major Santa Fe place.

Temple is the place. "I want

Temple perfectly. I can't tell you all the times Craig
Ordner (curator) has found things for me, scanned them, and
sent them promptly. I have not found such anywhere else.

My wife and I are getting
ready to update our wills. One of the things I have been
thinking about is what to do with my railroad materials.
I have photos, station plats, surveys, clearance charts,
etc. mostly dealing with the Alma branch. Back in 1983, I
donated all my Raton Pass materials to the De Golyer Library
at SMU in Dallas. Some other places I am considering are
the Kansas State Historical Society in Topeka, the Santa Fe
Archives in Temple, TX; and the California RR Museum. Any
other suggestions I should consider? I want to donate the
materials to some place they will be curated and will be
easily accessable to researchers.
