Lot of 4. Passes include 1913, two for 1918, and one for 1924. Three of the passes are issued to W.R. Scott (first as vp and GM for Southern Pacific Lines, then as president). The other pass is issued to A.W. Finn, Jr., Dist. Equip Supervisor for Western Union Telegraph Co. This railroad operated from Tucson to El Paso and south to Sonora. It served the copper mines of Arizona, having been founded by the Copper Queen Consolidated Co. (Phelps, Dodge) first as the Arizona & South Eastern Railroad in the 1880s. It was renamed El Paso & Southwestern in 1901. This rail was also involved in the Bisbee Deportation of 1917 when over 1,300 striking mine laborers, their families, and some innocent bystanders were loaded onto El Paso & Southwestern cattle cars and deported to Hermanas, New Mexico.
