Point Pedro and beach looking North to Marin County. Look close and you can see the remnants of the Ocean Shore Railway tracks, which offered Railroad service from San Francisco to Santa Cruz in the early 1900's. Taken near Devils Slide on Hwy 1 - Click Photo for FULL size 1280x960

i dontsee no old railbed? i dont see how there coulda been one ether, that terrain is FAR from railworthy. seams to me like there would be allot of unneeded trouble and the line would have a hard time paying for itself. witch would be why they took it out. if thats supposed to be the railbed on the far hill at the bottom where it looks like theres tunnels, fine, i guess so.

Thanx for your input. Google "Ocean Shore Railroad", this info should pop up. The coast part of the tracks ran from Pacifica to Santa Cruz on the edge of the coast. The 180 or 270 degree turn @ Point Pedro is described. Tracks were always in need of repair to Half Moon Bay. The Devil Slide area just south of this photo finally stopped the railroad, just as it stopped Hwy 1.
