  • CLINIC: Doug Wagner"A Look At The Southern Pacific's McKittrick Branch and The Sunset Railway — Then and Now" - Part 2
    These two branch lines in western Kern County were built to connect the vast oil fields in the area to Bakersfield for shipment of the oil to other locations. While Doug was still active with the Kern County Fire Department and stationed in western Kern County, he began researching the locations of the 2 branch lines. He was able to access areas that were not open to the general public, but as a firefighter, Doug was able to pretty much follow the lines not visible to the general public. He put together this presentation to show The Sunset Railway and McKittrick branches as they looked in the early 1900s compared to what they look like now.
