So I was reading, Chili Line: The Narrow Rail Trail to Santa Fe by John A. Gjevre and it mentioned that General William Jackson Palmer's original intention for the D&RG was to span from Denver to El Paso, with a potential extension to the Pacific Ocean via Guymas Mexico. I knew the D&RG was down in New Mexico and halted by agreement with the AT&SF but I didn't realize the famous 3 foot narrow gauge was destined for Texas and beyond. Just wondering -- has anyone ever done any layout planning or building on a "what if" scenario, what if the AT&SF hadn't stopped the D&RG in NM, what would that have looked like? Would we have seen K-27's along side a pacific or gulf ocean front dock?
