Bodie is a Unique Ghost Town and California State Historic Park located in the Eastern Sierra at an elevation over 8300 feet. In 1880 plans were in effect to buld a 32 mile narrow gauge railway that would haul timbers and cordwood from the forest area to the mines at Bodie. A route was surveyed from Bodie to the forested area where a sawmill was to be constructed in a ravine. The railway skirted the eastern shore of Mono Lake and finally with the aid of two switchbacks climbed the steep grade to its terminus above Bodie near the Standard Mine. Hard cover.
