Hunter (editor, Pacifica Tribune ) presents a largely pictorial account of the building and operation of the Ocean Shore RR in the early 20th century. The route was along the shore from San Francisco south to Santa Cruz and challenged the Devil's Slide , the chaotic ridge where The San Andreas Fault crosses the coast. (This rail roadbed is generally the alignment of today's Route 1.) Some 180 photos. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

With one of the world's most scenic backdrops as a brilliant seascape for passengers, the Ocean Shore Railroad skirted northern California's coastline to service communities south of San Francisco for the first two decades of the 20th century. As impressive as it was idealistic, the line was held prisoner by natural forces that eventually took too much of a toll to keep its striking route churning. Today's Highway 1 traces the passage once paved with tracks, and points to the few remnants of one of California's most well-known excursion lines.
