Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection includes financial documents from the North Shore Railroad Company.
The North Shore Railroad Company was incorporated on January 11, 1902. In 1902, the company purchased the entire property of the North Pacific Coast Railroad Company, consisting of 92.61 miles of narrow gauge road in Marin and Sonoma Counties. Almost immediately the North Shore began to electrify the line to serve municipalities contiguous to San Francisco Bay. This work involved the reconstruction of these sections to provide for operation of narrow gauge steam equipment and standard gauge electric equipment, by adding a third running rail. The North Shore Railroad Company became part of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad Company (effective January 8, 1907).
