Williams - Kingman

This section covers the BNSF Seligman Subdivision as it traverses Western Arizona.  From Kingman in the West, the route goes East through Seligman and then climbs up to Williams.

The Crookton Realignment

see the bottom of the page for Crozier canyon

Between Crookton and Eagle Nest The Crookton realignment took the Santa Fe off a steep alignment through Ash Fork and moved it North to ramp up to Williams on an easier grade.  In October 2002, I had a chance to go back and drive the entire route from Seligman to Williams.  Over the next few months, I'll add photos from that trip.

What are the chances that the Seligman Local would have a GP 30 from each of the BNSF's founding roads?  Sept. 1997.   On the right, Santa Fe 647 at East Crookton
