Photograph of the first train on the Cahuenga Valley Railroad to Hollywood, ca.1888. A small steam engine and one passenger car are pictured. Seven people are visible in the passenger car, one in the engineer's quarters and three on the running board between cars. The terrain around the train is unpaved, yet has what appears to be wagon tracks marked into it, perpendicular to and intersecting the train tracks. Sparse vegetation is visible in the background, and at the extreme right background, the beginning of a mountain.
