Well for Tombstone I dont think their ever was a tourist railroad?.
I do know that the last train ran on August 13, 1960, and the track was removed shortly thereafter. There was not enough traffic to support continued operation. Southern Pacific petitioned for abandonment, which was granted. The railroad donated the depot to the city for use as library. It continues to be used for that purpose today. Retired Southern Pacific caboose number 1057 and a boxcar were brought to Tombstone by truck in 1971 and placed next to the building on the old right of way.
They are the last reminders of Tombstones railroad heritage.
