Newport Beach’s railroad and pier

The pier in Newport Beach also was a railroad station in the 1910’s.  Here’s some pictures and explanations from Jeff Delaney’s book Newport Beach:

The pier/railroad station in Newport Beach, c. 1910

Fishermen and strollers were able to enjoy the pier on Sundays, as “nary a wheel turned on the railroad that day.”
