Carrizo Gorge Railway, Inc. (reporting mark CZRY) was a railroad operator on the San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway (SD&AE) from Tijuana, Mexico to Plaster City, California (Tijuana Tecate Short Line and Desert Line).
This section of the line is currently out of service so is safe to explore the many tunnels and trestle bridges. The largest Trestle bridge on the line is at Goat Canyon which is accessible from the De Anza Springs Resort which abuts the line at the southern end of the gorge.
Trains are currently suspended but will resume in 2018. This gives the explorer an opportunity to review the line and the infrastructure.
