James Bradley, Jr. replied to Richard C. Brand's discussion Hoppers sitting on the line
"Would a Herzog hopper be able to go South of Igancio?  I thought the clearance with the platforms didn't allow for freight movements.  If there's a hopper with ballast in it, it's not for the track construction in San…"

"I took those photos almost 5 years ago.  There have been no changes to any of the crossings in those 5 years. I'm currently waiting for the new signals to be installed at the Healdsburg roundabout.  Once they're installed,…"

Cloverdale--Asti Road (New Canteliver Closeup)

"Five years on, this crossing looks exactly the same (based on the current Google Street View, June 2016). Was this an example of Federal "shovel ready" Stimulus Spending?  Too bad those funds weren't put towards rehabilitating…"

The Majestic - 2001

"Dave...your arguments regarding the period accuracy are not 100% correct.  The locomotive that was used in the movie, CWR 65, is an ex Southern Pacific locomotive (3412).  A quick Google search shows that the locomotive was part of a…"

"All of the "new" signals were installed in 2013.  I took photos the week they were installed.  I think I posted some of them on this website, but will have to dig through the photos to find them. I asked someone at NWP about the…"

James Bradley, Jr. commented on Nico's status
"This is definitely NOT San Rafael.  Look at the track arrangement.  This is a gauntlet track, which is not used in San Rafael.  San Rafael station has an actual siding, rather than a gauntlet.  I'm inclined to agree that…"

Schellville, 2018-04-07, GGRM Construction

"The one thing that everyone is not taking into account is the fact that if the bill to disolve the NCRA passes, the tracks will no longer be owned by NCRA.  They will be owned by SMART.  The GGRM may not even be able to operate on the…"

James Bradley, Jr. replied to David L ILLICH's discussion NWP New Customer in Windsor
"The grade crossing at Starr Road needs to be completely rebuilt before any train movements can happen.  For some reason, this crossing was skipped when the other crossings further north were rebuilt.  I did notice that the City of…"
