Gwizz Posted August 29, 2008 Share Posted August 29, 2008 Another railroad that claimed to be the crookedest in the world.It had passenger trains that were pulled by gear locomotives up heavy grades, one over 5%.It was a 5 hour rail trip. In later years, long after the RR was gone, I could drive to the same end of line in 1.5 hours.I had 2 great uncles that helped build the power lines and rode on the trains. Another uncle took a summer job on the old abandon right-of-way that I was able to explore as a kid. I had some heartwood redwood RR ties from the RR that were stolen, found and I was paid well for the ties. http://www.sierrahistorical.org/archives/sjerailroad.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
