The Texas – New Mexico Railroad (TNMR) operates 104 miles of railroad extending from a Union Pacific connection at Monahans, TX to Lovington, New Mexico. The railroad serves the oil fields of west Texas and southeast New Mexico. The primary commodities hauled are oilfield chemicals and minerals, construction aggregates, industrial waste and scrap.
The TNMR was completed in 1930 as a subsidiary of the Texas and Pacific Railway (TP). The primary purpose of the TNMR was to serve the oil fields in west Texas and southeastern New Mexico. The TP was under financial control of the Missouri Pacific Railway (MP) beginning in 1928. In 1976, the MP completely merged the TP. In 1982, the MP was, in turn, merged into the Union Pacific Railroad (UP). UP sold the TNMR to shortline operator RailTex (RT) in 1989. In 1999, RT merged with another shortline holding company, RailAmerica (RA). RA sold the TNMR to Permian Basin Railways on May 25, 2002.
