"The irony of the NWP coming back to San Francisco and returning some red and grey diesels to the peninsula. That would be great if they did. Be like establishing a beach-head on the UP occupied Southern Pacific system. This is starting to feel like…"

NWP Hopper - HO

"Hey Chad! On 87-1414 I have the FRA reflector/delimeters pre-spaced on one stripe of clear. It'll make decalling that car a lot easier as you won't have to do each one, lay down a single stripe and you will be done. The delimeters are…"

Christopher Palomarez replied to Emilio Galo's discussion Will the Northern Section of this railroad ever run again?
"I really don't think that freight traffic will be what opens up any route North to Willits and Eureka. I believe a population boom and the logistics of connecting people to San Francisco and points in between will be the motivation. This will…"
