Vintage rail motorcar trip on track for this weekend

Posted: Monday, Apr 29th, 2013

WATSONVILLE — This weekend, about 40 vintage rail motorcars from across the country will converge on the Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay Railway for an inaugural two-day excursion.

Travelling roundtrip from Roaring Camp in Felton to Watsonville each day, with stops at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and La Selva Beach, the excursion will give spectators a chance to see vintage rail motorcars previously used as on-rail track inspection and maintenance vehicles.

Coordinated by NARCOA (North American Railcar Operators Association), the event will be the first time association operators have travelled on the Santa Cruz Branch Line between the Boardwalk and Watsonville.

Previous excursions have taken place on the Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific Railway, and a section of that railway between Felton and the Boardwalk will be used for next week’s event, due to a recent trestle fire three miles north of the Boardwalk near Wilder Ranch.
