Rails Of California's Central Coast

Diversity is the prime characteristic of the California Central Coast's many rail operations. Readers will be attracted by the varying scope of Central Coast  Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo County's rail systems. They range from local horsecar services and the narrow gauge electrified plant railroad that served the Santa Cruz Cement Company at Davenport, to the SP Railroads Coast Line and its engineering marvel Cuesta Grade, highlighted by the world-famous horseshoe curve. Local streetcar systems and long ceased regional railroads are part of the area's rail legacy. Rare, historic images blended with contemporary photography chronicle the region's railways from times past to the present.
