Amos had been a stop along the Southern Pacific railway, during the late 1800s, located about 13.5 miles north of Glamis. In those days, the steam locomotives required watering stops at about 20 mile intervals.

Like most stops, Amos probably had shacks for railroad workers, a watering tank, and probably a road leading into Brawley. It also included a cemetery.

Today, all that remains of Amos is the cemetery. The trains, having changed to diesel engines, no longer require a watering stop. All that remains of Amos is a railroad siding.

To reach the cemetery, travel to the town of Glamis, and head north on the Ted Kipf Road, which parallels the railroad track, for about 13.5 miles. Look carefully to the left and watch for grave markers. The markers lie about 50 feet off the road way.
