See today at Jamestown 1897 Railroad Park probably the only remnant of the ill-fated Yosemite Short Line, a 30″ boxcar home-built on a flat car.

Return to Monterey on my Railway Blog, former fish canneries on Cannery Row may provide some ideas for industrial buildings on a model railway layout. http://www.fdelaitre.org/wp2/2009/07/monterey/

Made a short stop in Santa Cruz. Had a thrilling experience on the Giant Dipper, Santa Cruz antique wooden rollercoaster (built in 1924), and have seen the Santa Cruz & Big Trees RR stopping at the Boardwalk. Have seen also the famous “La Bahia” apartments, in a rather poor state.

A real sample that may prove useful to modelers for (heavy) weathering of a model car (seen today on the Sausalito Marina).

Saw a interesting résumé of the worldwide history of tramways/streetcars on Market Street in San Francisco today.
