“The Impossible Railroad: 100 Years of the San Diego & Arizona Railway” – Free Presentation – May 16, 2019

Join us for a talk presented by the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum Association (PSRM) on the history of the San Diego & Arizona Railway on Thursday May 16, 2019 at 6 pm at the Alpine Library! The SD&A rail line was called the “Impossible Railroad” by engineers of its day due to the immense logistical challenges, which included extreme terrain requiring 2.5 miles of bridges and trestles, and 21 tunnels, including 11 miles through the treacherous Carrizo Gorge, an area where cliffs dropped more than 1,000 feet to the bottom. Additional construction challenges included floods, landslides, fires, hot weather, deaths from the flu, sabotage by revolutionaries, and various delays caused by World War I.

The Alpine Library is located at 1752 Alpine Blvd Alpine, CA 91901. For more info please call us at (619) 445-4221 or email albranch1752@gmail.com Visit our website at www.sdcl.org
