: : Well, It ain't no town and ain't no city, just awful small and awful pretty.. as far as A A and C--you really could go there by train as the Santa Fe had a local service that covered the route (without a change in trains) until the late forties..
: Now just a cotton-pickin' minute! I read that Anaheim, Azusa and Cucamonga were not on the same
: Santa Fe Railroad line! What gives? I could believe that Azusa and Cucamonga could be connected, as they were parallel roughly with the old US 66 Highway route, going east and west in and out of Los Angeles...But, the Santa Fe line in Anaheim that I knew went between Union Station in Los Angeles and San Diego.
: Any other comments on this or clarification? Maybe from some railroad experts who know about those rail routes of the past?
Sorry that I can't help you on this....I tried asking a man at a railroad station information booth about the various routes, but every time I asked him a question, he just stared at me and said, "I dunno"!
