This is the first in a short series of documentary videos on the historic, scenic Carrizo Gorge and the San Diego & Arizona Railway line that runs through it. This video explores the northern end of the gorge route. The trestles, tunnels, and tracks remain largely unchanged more than one hundred years after they were constructed. In fact, most of the rails are original, with dates on them as early as 1911. The line has seen only intermittent use since 1976.
