Question of the Month...Where did the coal come from on the trains into Clarkdale?

Don Thomas of Clarkdale was quoted "It was Santa Fe that delivered coal.  It came from Farmington, then to Gallup.  The train became Arizona Central line and is now Verde Canyon Railroad which currently delivers to the Cement Plant." 

From 1913 to 1989 the line was operated by the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.  Construction from Cedar Glade west of Drake to Clarkdale commenced on February 13,1912 and was completed on February 1, 1913.  (Wikipedia)
