Does 1922 have a winterization hatch? 2 Replies

There's a box like structure on the roof of 1922, towards the rear end, and it reminds me of the winterization hatches that were on CFNR 200-201. Is this what it is?Continue

Is there is some reason I don't see 1922 out on the line?

Just curious - I personally haven't seen 1922 with any frequency. SE  Continue

LOL!!! Look forward to seeing those photos, Bob! Also, that's a good idea about doing a group visit to Portola next summer. Let's see how many members are interested, and who knows? Never been there, and the more I hear about it and see photos trickle out, the more I want to go!

Not a single picture, battery went dead, film was over exposed etc, etc. NOT! :-)  About 130 pic later and a battery change I was DONE!  Found a fair amount of SP stuff including 3 Sugar Beet Cars, I was under the impression they had all been scrapped! So those are rare, one belongs the the "Santa Maria Group" the fella told me, they just won't come and get it. I think Santa Maria was the destination for the last Beet Train out of the Imperial Valley. I think we should look into doing a group get together next summer up at Portola. Bit of a drive but you can run a locomotive up there. It's about 120 miles from me but I like the scenery. And a drive up the Feather River Canyon would be nice from the West side!  I'll post photos as soon as I can, but I'm on duty tomorrow and 0300 isn't that far away.

Thanks, Bob, and welcome! By the way, did you have a camera when you went to Portola? 2 hours, dang that sounds fun! I'll have to visit someday myself.

"main reason i like like watching 1922 doing it is sound of the old 567 winding up, etc."

Steve,

    Exactly! It reminds me of me standing on my cousin's property across from the Schellville Depot and listening to the locomotives windup to get moving after the crew change.

Zachary,

       Great idea for 1922 Fan Forum! I was just at the Museum at Portola yesterday and saw a number of GP9's and SD9's and was wishing one of them was operating, BUT the season is winding down so a lot of stuff is already locked up, they close the end of the month. I had the place all to myself for over 2 hours!

Even tho I switched H&B as a student engineer on P&SR in mid 60s and vids of 1922 working there allow me to relive experience...main reason I like watching1922 doing it is sound of the old 567 winding up, etc.
