"What my mom rode in as a child going to Ferndale.  Wish she was still around to ask about it :("

NWP 109 Excursion 1941 Cerro-San Marin?

It's the April 1941 excursion on the Petaluma and Santa Rosa with venerable 4-6-0 #109 and four interurban coaches. We're stopped somewhere in Marin. Others have suggested that that's Terra Linda Ridge in the background and we're just railroad east…

NWP 143 Post-rebuild

"One other comment, the image viewed full size and using the plus sign, enlarged to its maximum, is truly well done! WRM, (Western Railroad Museum?), did a great job on the scan."

NWP 143 Post-rebuild

"James, I took the time to view your photo full size with maximum enlargement, and I have to agree, that is a round, i.e. Baldwin, builders plate. Every Alco engine I have ever seen has a rectangular builders plate. Fred Stindt has always been my go…"

NWP 181 Eureka

"Excellent 3/4  or  4/5  shot of loco. Only thing missing is what the American Locomotive product looks like from the other side. Maybe about the same but with detail items different.  That passenger car in background looks like…"

NWP 181 Eureka

The 181 gets a drink on the outbound engine lead in Eureka, 1939. Appears to be a late afternoon/evening shot with the side lighting. Another engine sits on the turntable in the distance. Today just the base of the large tank and the turntable…

NWP 143 Post-rebuild

"While we have all the originals, the five digit number on the bottom left of the picture is a WRM archive number, this is a copy of their digital copies they scanned last year. "

NWP 143 Post-rebuild

"You can see the circular Baldwin builders plate in the picture, this is definitely a Baldwin product. I do believe this was either 1948 or 1949, this was one of few Tiburon pictures he shot as an NWP employee. All the rest are from the 1939-1941 fan…"

NWP 143 Post-rebuild

"According to Fred Stindt's book, the NWP volume #1, #'s 142 &143 were built by Alco in 1922. #'s 182-184, class T-59, were delivered by Baldwin in 1922 as well. The dating of 1922 is not in question. James, could you check the…"

"Great photo?  Can you give us the approximate date if you know it.  Some may know when the "last batch of brand-new engines came from Baldwin," but guys like me have no idea. :-)"

"James, a great photo and a great addition to the very thin library of photos of NWP steam. Do you have more of your grand fathers photos? If you do would you please post them for us to enjoy."

NWP 143 Post-rebuild

Post-rebuild picture of the 143 in Tiburon, shot my my grandfather Lou Bradas Jr. NWP's last batch of brand-new engines came from Baldwin, this and its mate the 142 along with T-59s 182-184. 63" drivers, frame-width firebox, piston valves with…

EUKA51-1

"This is former SP 1101, it was bought by the Mann brothers and sent to Niles Canyon, where it is (mostly) restored as built. Dennis once told me it was a former EUKA caboose, and the metal patches in the next picture matches what I've seen on…"
