Laurel train memories

Laurel shack in downtown Laurel. Where's the train?

Laurel shack in downtown Laurel. Where’s the train?

I have no idea why there’s a small shack in Laurel. Maybe it’s a bus stop. Does a county bus go here? Or was it a train stop? I find that hard to believe because the train stopped running here in 1941 or so.

The Laurel train tunnel has never been easier to see from the road. Someone cleared out the brush leading to the tunnel. If you want to see what the original Old Santa Cruz Hwy looked like, cross Summit Road and continue to Hwy 17. It’s in amazingly good shape for being so old.
