Little Lamy & Crude Oil

Just a short jaunt from my home is a tiny train station that services, among other things, the Amtrak line linking us to Los Angeles and Chicago via the Southwest ChiefDSCN3373 DSCN3379 DSCN3387 DSCN3393 DSCN3399.  A controversy now embroils the community because an oil company is proposing to bring crude oil into the station and off-load it onto trucks for transporting to refineries.  Tracks and transporting trucks are outdated and the infrastructure has proved incapable of handling the increased demands.  In the small village, two wells are in close proximity to the proposed off-loading station. A petition against this ill-conceived plan needs your signature. Lamy is named after Bishop Jean Baptist Lamy who served Santa Fe from 1851 to 1885.
