Historic ICC Abandonment Filings

SOUTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD
Docket Number: 15213 Date: 2/19/1946 Section: 1(18)
App. of Southern Pacific Co. and Southern RR Co. for abandonment of a portion of the Fluto Branch, Glenn County, Calif. 11.021 miles.
Length: 11.021 miles Citation: 267 ICC 801  

I think that should read Fruto, rather than Fluto. At least that is the Spelling of the town in that immediate area. I do not know if it was ever named Fluto. I suspect a typo has taken place, I live 9 miles from Fruto, which seems to correspond with the Map location. I am willing to get a photo if anyone wants it for verification.
