California Southern Railroad (1914-1942)

The California Southern Railroad was established in 1914 to build a rail link from Rice to Blythe. Construction is finished in 1916, and the line extends to Ripley at 1920. It soon became a subsidiary of Santa Fe, and is sold to the railroad at the end of 1942. The line is currently abandoned by the Arizona and California Railroad on all but the first 4 miles.
