Jeff Moore:  WELL DONE!  I knew somebody would find it!

Now, the big question is "how did it get way over there?"

Yes, I think I saw it....and a LOT of greenhouses so I wouldn't go out strolling around!! It sure got quite a ways from the tracks, or right of way??

Still there, opposite side of the river from the tracks and mostly obscured by vegetation:

Also visible in Streetview from parts of the Laytonville-Dos Rios road bridge over the river.

Was looking for this using Google and Bing satellite imagery, but couldn't find it.

With this year's big rains it may have been pushed further down river.  Something to look for this summer.

More recent than 1964...probably from 96-97, and the NWP pretty much went under on the North end.

Was this car from the flood of '64?
