The August 19, 1923, Southern Pacific Coast Division timetable establishes distances in relation to other stations along the Boulder Creek Branch. Fish Hatchery, as it was then called, was located 77.9 miles south of San Francisco via the Mayfield Cut-Off and Felton Depot. It was 1.8 miles south of Boulder Creek, and nestled 0.5 miles south of Brookdale and 0.3 miles north of Siesta. No other timetables are available to this author for comparison at this time.
