This page is a list of line structures built and used by the Southern Pacific railroad or one of its predecessor roads. To be considered for this list, the structure should not be in current use by the Union Pacific railroad. Towers are the exception to the rule since they are few and far between. Depots are not listed, as they can be found on my various depot pages. If you know of any structures not listed, please contact the host.
