With all the new folks coming aboard daily and it having been awhile since we've asked this, What is your favorite fallen shortline?? Lets have some fun and hear from everyone. I'll start. I actually have two. The Mountain Quarries RR and the Michigan-California Lumber Co. Both are nearby to my hometown and have been abandoned many many years. Despite this, there are tons of evidence of there existance left. I grew up here in Auburn,CA. In the nearby canyon, there is a large 3 arch bridge. As a kid nobody really knew or cared what it was left over from. Well in my later years after I got into trains, I found out it is an old RR bridge from the Mountain Quarries RR. This little 7 mile shortline ran from a connection on the SP in Auburn (a place called Flint) down into the river canyon and across this old bridge to a huge quarry near Cool,Ca. Fasicnating little RR used 18 trestles, a switchback and the large cement bridge to make this journey. I had to find out more. I've hiked its length several times and the neat part is where the trestles were. All the abutments are still there. Turns out my mom used to play on the trestles when she was a kid! Cool!!! Well anyhow, as I got more and more into it and collected more info and pics, I decided to build a website about it. Now you all know it as Foothill Rails. By the way, the cover pic on the front page is of this three arch bridge know locally as "No Hands Bridge". Alrighty, whos next? Tell us about your favorite fallen shortline.
