Here's the Santa Cruz Local creeping up at the corner of
Walker and Beach street in September of 1995.

Sam Reeves catches them in action on July 25, 2000.
Sam adds the following...
"The train is the Santa Cruz Local. In
the back you can see the old 1897 depot built by SP, which is a classic in its
own right next to the wig-wags. I guess I love that location in Watsonville
since its like walking onto a real-life model railroad. Old depot, old
storefronts, modern locomotives, street running, and of course those fabulous
magnetic flagmen on Beach Street."
