Description 

"The line was opened in 1875 and twenty years later, in 1895, the last major addition was made: A spur track which was driven three miles up Lagunitas Canyon to reach one more grove of virgin redwoods.

The spur, which left the mainline in the middle of a trestle,was called the Shafter Branch."
