Viva the New Mexico Central Railroad! Tim Rogers will outline planning approaches for trails as non-motorized transportation in New Mexico communities and discuss the ideal kinds of alignments that emerge for community trails, including a variety of natural and man-made corridors of historic and cultural interest. Focusing on trails along active and abandoned rail alignments, he will use a case study of the New Mexico Central Railroad to discuss trails as a possible agent of historic preservation and interpretation, in addition to transportation, recreation, and health.
