Roadamite “Rare Mileage”

by on Nov.14, 2015, under Friends-SMVRR, PCRy, SMVRR

As usual, Kevin took great care of us as we headed south and east of Santa Maria to track the route of the Santa Maria Valley Railroad to the end of its line at Roadamite and then follow the Pacific Coast Railway right-of-way from Palmer back into town. And we got some “rare mileage” out of the deal!¬†Kevin got permission (and the gate code) from the private property owner where the Roadamite oil loading racks were located. We stood at the very spot that was the end of the line.

All the pics are here.

The right-of-way went just underneath the line indicated.

Just ahead of the group is the end of the line for the SMVRR.

Friends take a Roadamite Field Trip

by on Aug.13, 2011, under Friends-SMVRR, PCRy, SMVRR

Seven Friends of the SMVRR spent some time roaming about south and east of Santa Maria looking for evidence of the Pacific Coast Railway and the Santa Maria Valley Railroad right-of-ways in this area now void of tracks. It’s been many decades, but the right-of-way can be spotted here and there if you know what to look for… Photos: http://www.friends-smvrr.org/110813.html
