Railroads of the Yosemite ValleyBook - 1963
This is a reprint of a classic work that tells the intriguing story of the four short line railroads that operated in the Merced River canyon to serve Yosemite National Park. Originally published in 1963, the volume offers a wealth of photographic material, including over 200 black and white images of trains, tracks, stations, and related structures and objects. Because the advent of the automobile meant the demise of all four railroad lines, Railroads of the Yosemite Valley documents an important chapter in California history never to be known again.
