An abandoned railroad line in Alameda County, California of which 20 miles have been abandoned, was once operated in California by the Central Pacific Railroad and the Southern Pacific Railroad.

This petition probably has to do with the abandonment of the Interurban Electric Railway (former SP) East Bay commuter lines. There is probably a concomitant application from the Key System to assume operations over some of the IER lines subject to these abandonment proceedings. The IER abandonment took place, I believe, in January 1941, as did the KSTL operation over former IER lines, so the time line seems appropriate.
Do you have any pictures or information about Abandoned Rails of Alameda County? Please
