Stagecoaches, outhouses and general stores: Inside the preserved American ghost town left untouched for almost 70 years

Covered in decades worth of cobwebs and left to a slow decay, Steins, New Mexico looks like the very definition of an American ghost town in the searing desert heat.
Originally a coal depot for the Southern Pacific Railroad, Steins was essentially abandoned overnight when the railroad switched to diesel fuel in the mid 1940's.
As the saloons, general stores and bordello's closed, the towns 1,000 or so people left their belongings as they were, gathering dust and fading away for the past 70 years.
