4,850 feet of dual gauge railroad track on a 2% graded roadbed was laid from the main CG&P (Cincinnati, Georgetown & Portsmouth Railroad Company) line to the New Water Works. The CG&P was a narrow gauge steam line constructed by the Cincinnati & Portsmouth Railroad, 1876-1886, and converted to Standard Gauge and Electrified in 1902. While the line never made it to Portsmouth it was the first steam railroad in the country to convert to electricity. The branch to the California water works was built with dual gauge to allow standard gauge freight cars from the Little Miami Railroad to be hauled to the waterworks with the CG&P's narrow gauge locomotives. GCWW purchased this rail addition in the 1930's when CG&P was liquidated.
