The Las Cruces Railroad Museum will host a lecture at noon on Tuesday, August 12. New Mexico has a rich history of railroading and has been home to many small regional railroads. Joseph E. Gill will discuss some of the early
railroads between El Paso and Arizona, and south to the Mexican border.

Gil has a Master of Science in counseling from San Bernardino State University in California. His father worked for the Santa Fe Railroad for 39 years and this fostered his son’s life-long interest in railroads and their history.
