The Oroville Branch
|Southern Pacific Railroad|
|Docket: AB-12 Sub 28||5/3/1976||Section: 1a|
|Application filed for authority to abandon a line of railroad extending from MP 146.59 south of Oroville in a southerly direction to the end of the branch at MP 143.78 near Villa Verona, a distance of 2.81 miles in Butte County, California.|
|Length: 2.810 miles||Citation:|
Curious enough about the abandonment squibs to pin down Villa Verona, Google finds it as a town NW of Oroville(toward Paradise), but DeLorme doesn't list or show it, while S.P. Maps put it just s/o Oroville, the presumed reference in ICC dockets.
Villa Verona Colony (very old named tract) was/is East/South of Oroville.
