The Visalia Electric Railroad , Southern Pacific’s Orange Grove Route by Phillips C. Kauke tells the story from the start of the 30 mile route in 1904 until its end in 1924.

The Tulare County Historical Society members examined the caboose and debated about taking it on as a project. It sits in Mooney Gove Park on the Tulare County Museum Grounds in Visalia, CA. It’s a wonderful place to visit if you are going to the Sequoia National Park for a Vacation.

Since 1992 most of the old tracks have been abandoned, but you can still see a few on Road 196 going into Elderwood, CA, which was the end of the Orange Route.

    • Thank you Frank. That is one of my favorite views. In January and February you can see the mountains clearly. Then pollution takes over and messes up the most beautiful place in the world.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
