In this work, the author explores the positive and negative effects which the coming of the railroads had in the development of the Santa Ana and Tustin areas, confined to the period extending from the coming of the Southern Pacific to Anaheim, to the completion of the Santa Ana to Oceanside stretch of the Santa Fe in August 1888. Stephen Louis “Steven” Gould (1947 - 2020) was a member of a pioneer Tustin family who arrived in Orange County in 1888, a prolific self-published author of local history, and the founder of One-by-One Ministries. His father, Jack, had farmed on the Irvine Ranch and the Goulds attended the little Irvine Community Church on Sand Canyon Ave. His family stories and personal anecdotes provided snapshots of life in Orange County not recorded elsewhere.
