Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix Ry Employee Timetables: 1893-1921
The Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix Railway was incorporated in May 1891, and built to service the populace and mining communities of Central Arizona, later becoming an intricate part of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway in Arizona. At Ash Fork it connected with the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad (AT&SF subsidiary) and extended south 196 miles through Prescott to Phoenix (this segment nicknamed the Peavine), and included a handful of branch lines (P&E Jct to Middleton, Poland Jct to Poland, Phoenix to Mesa).
