SAN DIEGO & ARIZONARAILWAY HISTORY

TheSan Diego and Arizona Railway (reporting mark SDA) was a 148-mile (238 km)short line U.S. railroad founded by entrepreneur John D. Spreckels, and dubbed"The Impossible Railroad" by engineers of its day due to the immenselogistical challenges involved. It linked San Diego, its western terminus, withEl Centro, its eastern terminus, where passengers could connect with SouthernPacific's transcontinental lines, eliminating the need to first travel northvia Los Angeles or Riverside.

Thecompany charter was executed on December 14, 1906, and the groundbreakingceremony was held the following September. Numerous delays (includinggovernment intervention during World War I) delayed the completion of the lineto November 15, 1919. Damage to the lines from both natural disasters andsabotage exerted great financial pressure on the company, and in 1932Spreckels' heirs sold their interests in the railroad to the Southern Pacific,which was named the San Diego & Arizona Eastern Railway (SD&AE).
