"This is the story of the North Pacific Coast Railroad, which eventually became part of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad. The NPCR was a narrow gauge road, but it had equipment of the latest type, which was always well maintained. Its equipment included fast paddle-wheel ferries and the largest narrow gauge steam locomotives available at the time. The line carried redwood, sightseers and commuters from the Russian River to Sausalito on San Francisco Bay. Train wrecks and boat accidents dot the history of the railroad, adding to the unusual story that is told. Hard cover, 168 pages, lots of photographs."
