Darling is a cinder pit and railroad station name situated in Coconino County, Arizona. Darling is both the Santa Fe railroad's name for the Winona, Arizona train station and the name of the cinder pit next to Winona. The station has an estimated elevation of 6227 ft above sea level.[1]

Darling Cinder Pit was used by the Santa Fe Railroad to mine, gather and distribute railway roadbed materials.[2][3][4][5] It is located in Cinder Mountain, a Tappan age basaltic cinder cone.[6] The place and the pit are both named in honor of William B. Darling, a local railroad engineer.[7]

In October, 2019, three freight cars derailed. A Burlington Northern freight train derailed there, disrupting both freight traffic and passenger train traffic on Amtrak. An indefinite track closure was reported.[8][9][10][11][12]
