Greetings from The Lemon!

In downtown Lemon Grove on the El Cajon branch of The SD&AE lies Lemon Grove, California. Once dubbed "the sunniest place on earth". The branch rolls right downtown. I lived there in 75-76 when I first got married. The squeaky SW's would be pulling through from the yard in San Diego to El Cajon to serve various industries along the way. LG was an important citrus shipping mecca on the line. The whole area before development was rolling hills, full of citrus.
