Feeder line of the Southern Pacific's Sacramento Southern RR

From: PaddlingBooks@aol.com

I am researching background information on the SP Southern RR feeder line from Hood to Walnut Grove CA. Specifically on the section that crossed the tule marshes at Delta Meadows. What type of trestle crossed over the marshes, and if any photos exist of the area. Is this the line that had the McKeen Motor Cars on it? Was the line abandoned in 1957? or earlier? & finally what was Locke's role in the RR line.
