Descanso, Alpine & Pacific Railroad
« on: August 27, 2020, 02:31:23 PM »
This two-foot gauge, half-mile back yard railroad at Alpine, San Diego County, California was powered by a 2.5 ton gas locomotive by Brookville Locomotive works in 1935. The caboose is patterned after the Colorado & Southern #1009 caboose, which is also being restored in California. 

Starting about 1990, Mr Ray Athey built and operated this fun little railroad. By 2018, he was no longer able to operate it and it was donated to the Pacific Southwest Railroad Museum. I hope they re-build it; the kids will love it!
