Showing progress of construction on Keddie-Bieber line of Western Pacific Railroad. Pictures taken during the first week in December, 1930, are in Books, 2 and 3.
Miles shown in description are construction sections and are approximate only.
In describing accompanying photographs the words "north" and "south" are used in the railroad sense only without respect to points of the compass. "North" is toward Bieber; "south" is toward Keddie.
