          The route the A & P RR travels is across a piece of property which receives "irrigation" every two weeks for its numerous fruit trees. Water from a series of canals floods the property twelve inches deep at those times. The track is laid two feet above the rest of the property on an elevated roadbed constructed with a thousand feet of block retaining walls, hundreds of tons of rock backfill and a twelve foot trestle across the irrigation head. Crushed granite ballast, treated 4 x 4 ties and 12 lb. rail comprise the balance of the roadbed and track.
