Port San Luis to Los Olivos

The Pacific Coast Railway

I do not have any information on this abandoned route. If you know anything about this route, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Thank you!

I have just completed a written tour of the route of the narrow gage Pacific coast railway through SLO county, with computer generated maps of the location of the line which are referenced to existing roads. This tour differs from other known info because it references existing county roads. It specifies stopping points of interest which include Hadley station, the Arroyo Grande warehouse and the famous horseshoe curves. My goal is to append this information to a more complete set of info so that if someone wants to take the auto tour they can down load the text and maps and then conduct their own guided tour to visit those sites excessable by county roads. Am I on the right track?

I am in the final stages of completing the tour. It contains pictures, maps and verbiage.

My concern is how to distribute this information to interested persons. The maps and pictures are stored as jpegs. The total size of all is 72 Mbytes. I don't think email could handle that much. I was hoping to use some sort of cloud, such as Wikipedia, to link to the subject of "Pacific Coast Railroad"

Do you have experience with a situation such as this?

Do you have suggestions?

I like your little cross bar.

I too would love to get to see this project of yours. I would love to take my friends on a road trip over the original lines and show them significant spots where the train went through. You could use MegaUpload's website to store information of your project and just provide a download link to the file/s for free. Here is MegaUpload's website html: https://mega.co.nz/

I also found a website recently with files containing maps of the entire route. It even shows degrees and grading. http://www.slocounty.ca.gov/PW/County_Surveyor/Pacific_Coast_Railway_Right_of_Way_Maps.htm
