New Mexico

Became territory: September 9, 1850
Became state: January 6, 1912

With low population and rough topography, the number of known railroad company incorporations in New Mexico is fairly low. A strict specialist would have a tough time collecting many certificates bearing the New Mexico imprint. On the other hand, predecessors of the two largest US railroads, the Union Pacific and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe, offer a fair number of certificates for state collectors with a more generalist point of view.

One of the few seals to include the seal design of another entity. The large eagle with arrows in its talons represents the American eagle. Under its wing is the quintessential Mexican emblem: an eagle on a cactus holding a snake in its beak. Crescit eundo (It grows as it goes) appears on a ribbon below.
