By Jack R. Wagner

Rugged, soaring cliffs and ocean vistas made the California coast between San Francisco and Santa Cruz the obvious place to build a scenic railroad. So, at the turn of the century a visionary group of local men determined that here they would create a high-speed commuter line to serve the growing towns and fresh ocean beaches along this breathtaking route. 

The Last Whistle is the story of a gallant failure, of practrical men and dreamers who would do everything but quit. Its richly pictorial history (180 illustrations) shows disastrous landslides, holiday crowds at the unique depots, the exploded boiler of old No. 2 and views of the impossible right of way.
