Here is some information on one of my interests, railroading (especially
steam). The Union Pacific serves Santa Cruz, we get a train through
here three times a week. You will hear the sound of a diesel locotomotive's
horn more than that, because we also have a tourist line that runs on the
old South Pacific Coast tracks. Originating in Felton, the Santa
Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific railroad runs most weekends through the
summer. The train delivers tourists between Felton and the
Cruz Beach & Boardwalk.
See some of my pictures of railroad related stuff.
