Collection Overview


California and Arizona railroad stations, trestles, engineering drawings, and railway views


Assorted technical drawings, station drawings, and photographs from several railways in California, Arizona, and perhaps elsewhere in the West. One album of 29 professional views (platinum or platinum-toned photoprints) documents stations, trestles, and rolling stock of the San Francisco & San Joaquin Valley Railroad, ca. 1895-1900. A small snapshot album contains views, ca. 1910, along lines in the Southwest with Kingman, Laguna, and the Santa Fe Route identifiable. 6 card mounted photographs, ca. 1895, depict trestles, surveyors and a station, including the S.P.R.R. bridge at Ventura and a trestle on Moore and Smith's flume near Fresno. Also present: 1 drawing and 2 copies of drawings of stations; 4 portfolios of plans and watercolor drawings of proposed stations (including Oroville and Yuba City, Calif.) and 2 bound multi-panel technical drawings of railroad trestle systems. One of these plots grades and technical details along the S.P. of A. Yuma to Adonde reconstruction, 1892. The second set of bound drawings is of S.P.R.R. crossings of the Stanislaus, Dry Creek, Tuolumne, Merced, and San Joaquin rivers.
