I was able to take these photos last Monday while going to Sonoma. I noticed the gate was open to the Yard, then noticed some activity. We stopped and I went over to ask permission to take photos. The man in charge said, "sure, go right in"! Our conversation was short as they were wanting to get to their jobsite, which I found out later was the crossing of the road going to the north end of Skaggs Island from Ramal Road. The gentleman did mention, they are still getting grief from "a bunch of people" and people are driving around the depot building instead of making thier U turns on the paved roads. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to really get any detailed info. I was greatful to be allowed access to the Yard, timing is everything ya know! Also the Wingo Gate is open for the season, it will be locked again this Oct according to the sign. Was going to go down there but my wife wasn't feeling too good so had to abort that effort. Anyone interested in meeting up over there in the next month or so to explore Wingo?
