Lamy, New Mexico

The town of Lamy is located 18 miles south of Santa Fe, New Mexico on US Hwy 285. Lamy is a railroad town created in 1879 when the Atchison,Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad laid its main track through New Mexico. The AT & SF by-passed the city of Santa Fe because the climb was too much for the engines of the day, so a spur line was built to the capital from Lamy. Lamy grew up where the spur line connects Santa Fe to the main track.The Lamy Depot is still open for Amtrak service, and the Santa Fe Southern Railroad brings a tourist train to Lamy over the spur line almost daily.

Come spend an afternoon in the shady Railroad Park across from the Museum.

Model Train Display in Lamy

Lamy's storied past came alive Saturday, June 11, from 11 am to 5 pm when the Lamy Railroad & History Museum and the Santa Fe Model Railroad Club officially unveiled a working museum exhibit that shows the AT&SF trains as they stopped at Lamy with celebrities and ordinary travelers in the middle of the 20th century.
