Re: Lower Cascade Bridge

It was precisely because milepost assignments change over thime that I started from a known nearby reference point - Cisco - and calculated milage from there when using several sources from different years. Of course track realignments can effect even that, but in that particular area I think such adjustments have been pretty nominal - certainly for the purpose of identifying major features such as stations and bridges. Lynn also pointed out some 19th and early 20th century maps and station plats in the California State Railroad Museum collection, available through the CSRM Library (1-5 pm, Tuesday - Saturday).
