From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, February, 1942.
The city of Grants Pass may become the owner of the California & Oregon Coast Railroad line originally started to connect the Rogue River with the coast at Crescent City, but completed only from Grants Pass to Waters Creek, a distance of 15 miles.
The railroad is now being operated by the Pacific Portland Cement Company, formerly Beaver Portland Cement Company, carrying limestone principally.
Among persons and firms having interest in the railroad are the city as original builder, financing construction through $200,000 bonds; Twohy Bros., who constructed an extension; the California & Oregon Coast Railroad, incorporated to operate the line; and C.H. Demaray, receiver.
