Group of passengers exiting train going up the hill to the West Point Inn. Locomotive is seen facing backwards behind two open air passenger railroad cars. Smoke is bellowing from the locomotive smokestack. There is a sign on the corner of the building that says "West Point Inn". The mountain top is seen off in the distance behind the train and the Inn. The West Point Inn was built in 1903. It at once became a haven for hikers with its wide veranda and rustic picnic tables. This photo is taken after 1919 when the Tamalpais Conservation Club bought the large timbered sign that hangs at the corner of the building.
