Notes

Railroad histories are complicated, with mergers, sales, and abandonments. This article gives just an outline of this railway that was important to Deep Springers for many years. The museum in Laws (near Bishop) and online information can tell you more. You might be able to see a leftover engine in a park in Independence.
