Accounting records and an annual report for the Coast Line Railway.
The Coast Line Railway was incorporated April 15, 1905. This was the name under which the Southern Pacific Company constructed 11.90 miles from Santa Cruz to Davenport, California, between September, 1905, and July 8, 1907. It was deeded to the Southern Pacific Railroad on August 24, 1917. The Coast Line owned no rolling stock of its own, and the line is now known as the Davenport Branch of the Coast Division. [Guy Dunscomb, A CENTURY OF SOUTHERN PACIFIC STEAM LOCOMOTIVES, 1862-1962 (Modesto, California: 1967), p. 377]
