Thoughts and notes on Eureka traffic
3 Replies

The thread on rebuilding the NWP at least to Willits rekindled some thoughts I had on the shippers around Eureka and what's happened to them in the 16+ years since the railroad shut down.  Following…Continue

Slip Sliding Away in the Eel River Canyon

The addition of a couple people (especially Fred Cain) to this list has sparked a lot of good and interesting discussion.  In the interest of showing what the railroading in the Eel River Canyon is up against, I wanted to present the list of major slides and other trouble spots in the Willits to Eureka trackage.  The following is transcribed from Fred Stindt's Northwestern Pacific Railroad Volume 2 book, and is based on information he obtained from the Northwestern Pacific m-o-w department in…See More
