A late 1800s steam train stopped for water on the old Atlantic & Pacific RR. This scene is near Pueblo of Laguna, west of Albuquerque. There appears to be 2 telegraph lines here. The line closest to the train has 2 crossarms with a total of 4 insulators per pole and the other line only has one crossarm with 2 insulators. This is a picture of a picture from "National Museum of the American Indian - Spring 2012" .
