Dalies, NM 2-3-84 - Dalies, NM 2-3-84 Dalies is at the top of the grade out of the Rio Grande valley about 13 miles west of Belen. This train has been audible for several minutes as the 5 big units lift it up onto the plateau. This is also where the line from Raton and Albuquerque rejoins the Transcon back by the water tower.
