Iron Road of the Californias

By María Castillo-Curry

On October 13th, 2002, the first survey tour took place on the Tijuana Tecate Railroad as part of the activities to promote the Iron Road of the Californias project. Forty-one people from organizations and institutions from California and Baja California boarded the train in Tijuana and traveled along the line arriving at Tecate. The trip was a big success and brought back memories to people who traveled on the train in their childhood. It also helped us to better understand the shared natural and cultural heritage of the Californias and the challenges to preserve its values. The Iron Road is a heritage corridor project promoted by the San Diego Railroad Museum, Save Our Heritage Organisation, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, the California Border Museums Association and the Cuerpos de Conservación Mexicanos. The next step of the project is to pursue technical advise from the U.S. Parks Service, National Trust and other binational heritage corridor sub-projects.

Anyone interested in joining the working group on this project is welcome.
