Mt Tamalpais & Muir Woods Railway - Crookedest Railroad in the World



When I visited mount Tamalpais in San Francisco Bay Area, I also visited a small museum on the east hill which take you through the history of trains on this hill and how it was connected to the other neighbouring towns of Bay Area. I found it very interesting, especially the Gravity Train coachh places at the entrance of the museum.

East peak is one of the highest peaks around Mount Tamalpais. Above photograph is clicked from the same peak which offers great view of the San Francisco Bay Area. The museum I visited is close to the parking area of East hill. It's one of the smallest hikes on Mount Tamalpais in California.

Before 19th sanctuary, Mill valley was very special place for folks living in dense San Francisco Bay Area and here it was all lush green with different kinds of vegetation/trees all around.

Entry to this museum is free, so you can simply walk there and explore the place with relevant details placed in form of printed cards.     If you are wondering if this railway line is still operational or operates during some of the special days/occasions, that's not the case.

There is one Gravity car placed in this museum and it looks awesome. It's actually an open coach with wooden benches. Looking at the Gravity car, I could guess the speed of the trains which used to run on this railway line. It must be pretty slow or at least not very fast for folks who are exposed to the air and sitting on a wooden coach.

Above photograph shows front part of the gravity car and behind that are seats which are exactly of same height of the front part you see.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -   1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter Use dustbins. 2. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.   3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.   4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.   5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite
