About this Item

This book tells the story of the 3-foot-gauge Pacific Coast Railway. For some 66 years this line ran from the deep water harbor at Port Harford (later Port San Luis) on the Central California coast, north through San Luis Obispo, and then south to the sleepy little town of Los Olivos. This book is an excellent reference work about this railway with station track plans, structure and equipment plans. Contents: Ch. 1: The Story, pp. 1-84; Ch. 2: Over the Line, pp. 85-199; Ch. 3: Motive Power, 200-239; Ch. 4: Rolling Stock, pp. 240-281; Appendix A: Equipment and Fixtures in California, pg. 282; Appendix B: Length of the Electric Track, pp. 283-284; References, pp. 285-288; Index, pp. 289-296. Benchmark Publications, hardcover with dust jacket, 296 pages, 8.5 x 11 x .75 in., B&W photographs and illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # bmp748
