Coronado Railroad (1888)

The Coronado Railroad served the Hotel Del Coronado and residents of the city, for both commuter and tourist.. This historic rail transportation corridor also served as a critical component in WWII, connecting North Island with San Diego. It is now threatened by a shopping mall project within the city of Chula Vista. A counter proposal has been offered by a coalition of environmental groups to support its use as a rail line for eco-tourism. It was recently listed as a California State Historic landmark, despite a concerted effort by attorneys and consultants to the San Diego Unified Port District to contest the designation. Having survived that battle, now its future must be preserved, adaptively reused and interpreted for all to understand and enjoy.
