LAPIS SPUR; Monterey Branch

From: TWINCOACH@aol.com

I'm looking for information (history) on the old sand quarry at LAPIS on the SPCo.'s Monterey branch. I know they at one time did their own switching with an old PLYMOUTH gas locomotive, 10 ton (SG) in the 1920's. At that time the company was operating under the name BAY DEVELOPMENT CO., LAPIS, CA.
