The public is invited to attend. Reena's pictorial presentation encourages you to use your imagination - the year is 1907. San Diego is a town with a population of under 33,000. The country is facing a serious financial crisis. Only steam shovels, wheelbarrows, mules, picks, hand tools, black powder, and dynamite are available for construction. So, what would any reasonable businessman do? Well, if you had been San Diego business leader John Spreckeis, you would have built a railroad of course! Not just any railroad.., a railroad through two countries, over and around mountains, and through a desert. Not just any desert.., a desert that requires slicing through an isolated stretch of cruel landscape with no level terrain for over 10 miles! Reena became interested in the railroad after hiking in the desert and finding railroad tracks "in the middle of nowhere." Come be informed and entertained by viewing 100-year old vintage photographs and hearing about the series of events that took place leading to the construction of 148 miles of tracks, tunnels, bridges and trestles between San Diego and El Centro, CA, via northern Baja, Mexico, and through remote Carrizo Gorge within the Anza- Borrego Desert. The building of this jinxed "Impossible Railroad" pressed forward in the face of the Mexican Revolution, torrential rainfall (The Hatfield Flood), near vertical slopes and World War I. Nonetheless, on November 15, 1919, surrounded by dignitaries and spectators, John D. Spreckels proudly drove the golden spike to connect the SD&A tracks that completed the building of the last link in the southern transcontinental railroad system.Reena's new book will be available for purchase and signing; "San Diego & Arizona Railway; The Impossible Railroad". Refreshments will be served. Track #1 by H "Buddy" Seifert Champions the Julian Eagles Mes Track Team. photo by Joseph Munson pushed the Eagles point total even higher.
