Going down Monterey way - in steam and diesel
Author: rswebber

A branch and passenger train that died about 5 years too soon - and I can only imagine what those folks in Monterey and Carmel would say if the Del Monte could bring those people in without their cars today - though they likely wouldn't want it going through their ocean front property! Stand just east of the Aquarium and look North down the bike/walking path and you can see the ROW for miles...

SP 2547 on July 6 1955 at Fort Ord

SP 52xx near Monterey July 6, 1955

Looks like shot #2 is right at the Del Monte tunnel curve, before the tunnel, of course. AA

Definitely, the second pic is at Presidio Curve. Flatcar going to the old Hayward Lumber which is now senior housing. Hoppers are for Del Monte sand #1 plant. Engineer probably Jerry McCabe

That's a hint of Cannery Row to the right isn't it?

Cannery Row begins a few blocks beyond the corner.
