Northwestern Pacific Railroad Network

Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading

Today's SMART e-news blast says that the NWP will be performing PTC testing on the part of the line shared with SMART starting tomorrow. 

Can anyone one get out there with a camera to catch this?  Hopefully 2009 and 1501 and may be why 1322 is mothballed.

A bit of copy lifted from the Press Democrat article:

"Following Thursday night’s startup, the test runs by slow-rolling locomotives will occur between 9:30 p.m. and 4 a.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 9:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays, potentially continuing through mid-April."


"Once testing on the Novato to Petaluma route is completed, it will move north to Cotati, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa and part of Windsor and could take up to six months to complete, SMART said."

I would be interested in getting out there and capturing early morning and/or 9:30 PM runs. Any heads up to the train's location is appreciated. 

2009 is sitting in novato all by it self at march rd at 37 and 101
