this is probably the 1 i saw on 03 June a mile or so N of downtown Eureka - think it was on a siding in the backlot of some large production outfit, maybe lumber related.
"The Inside Track" was the name of the gift boutique that was once housed inside this old Pullman. It was originally located near the intersection of Waterfront Drive and C Streets, in the City of Eureka, Humboldt County. Several years ago, it was donated to the Timber Heritage Society (THA) and had to be moved from that location to where it is now. The Pullman was moved by one of the now stagnant GP units rusting away in the old NCRA yard in Eureka, to an industrial siding at the California Redwood Company mill, located on Highway 101, just north of Eureka. It can be seen from the southbound lanes, just south of the mill entrance. Attached is a photo of how it looks now.
As we all know this picture pops up periodically on our screens when we open the site. What I noticed today is that someone in the near past when the picture was taken (2011?), must have been using this car for some purpose. Notice the near-new condition of the chimney for the stove. The plating on that stack is much newer than the car.
Anybody know the present location?
Humbolt did this? What a shame.
Humboldt County should be ashamed they let the tracks get that bad.
I assume your (THA) next goal is to enhance the motorcar excursions the lumber yard northeast of Manila? I loved the ride, BTW! Is the A&MR 44 tonner operable?
Also, the Arcata march area has been filled in with gravel for trails. (And no EIR was issued for that, we can be sure.)
Why don't they leave it there and haul it to Samoa until you clear up the tracks to the point where the car is stored so you save expenses for trucking to just haul it via the RR?...
Yes, this is the one. The brakes, and bearings were worked on, and repaired in 01. (They have a paint mark saying NCLIA 2001.
I've actually been out twice to it, painting over graffiti, and Thad is right, the trucks are in bad shape.
If you look at it today, you'll see the patched over grey paint, that was me.
