The Impossible Railroad: 100 Years of the SD&A

  • Thursday, May 16, 2019, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Alpine Library, 1752 Alpine Boulevard, Alpine

A talk on the history of the San Diego & Arizona Railway. The SD&A rail line was called “the impossible railroad” by engineers of its day, due to many logistical challenges: extreme terrain requiring 2.5 miles of bridges and trestles, 21 tunnels (including eleven miles through the treacherous Carrizo Gorge, an area where cliffs dropped more than 1,000 feet to the bottom), floods, landslides, fires, hot weather, deaths from the flu, sabotage by revolutionaries, and delays caused by World War I.
