Milepost 16 was the site of a passing siding known as Bodkin. The siding was 888' long.

The siding started at the end of the tangent to the west (behind me) and then extended around the curve at the far end of this shot. Today it is not much more than a wide spot in the road.

A view of the San Francisco Peaks and Red Rock Country from Bodkin. That would have been a nice view from a passenger car heading to Jerome.
