The State Belt: San Francisco's Waterfront Railroad
This book explains the history of the railroad that served San Francisco’s waterfront for over a century. The entire area of the waterfront was owned by the State of California, and therefore so was the railroad. This definitely is a book for rail historians and for anyone interested in rail-marine connections and in the operation of freight railroads.
Authors William H. Kaufman and Michelle S. Kaufman, hardback 180 pages.
