This book tells the story of the pioneering narrow-gauge railroad on California's Central Coast. Growing from a two-thousand foot freight line running from the nearest wagon road to the Port San Luis pier in the early 1970s, eventually the Pacific Coast Railway extended northwards to the city of San Luis Obispo and southwards through Low Alamos to Los Olivos, in the Santa Yanez Valley, by the mid-1880s. This book tells its story through the unique newspaper and photo records of the BENNETT-LOOMIS ARCHIVES in Arroyo Grande, CA. Originally published as two books--one for the centennial of the arrival of the Pacific Coast Railway into Arroyo Grande in 1881 and one for the centennial of its arrival in Los Alamos in 1882--this publication combines both into a single volume. In addition to the narrative of the construction and operation of the railway line, the text also includes anecdotes about "P.C. Railway Humor" and "Wrecks and Mishaps."
