"We stopped by The Train Shop yesterday and was delighted to discover one of these. I found one prototype photo from an earlier era (30-40's?) and the model looks pretty darn close. It's a 1919 car with a 8-58 repaint with Gothic lettering.…"

The SP Santa Rosa Branch

This is a group for people who know about this branch, or anyone on here that had seen a train on this historic 8 mile "route" between Santa Rosa and Schellville, considering that it has been paved over and ripped out. I followed the route on a map that Mike Davis sent me and I was amazed how close to my house the tracks were. I had no idea that tracks used to be right under my feet at many moments.See More

"Cool!  Ardenwood is a heck of a heavenly place.  We love visiting.  They have done a lot of work on the car barn area, last time we visited they had that siding (I'm guessing) surveyed and marked."

Yes, my second time to Afghanistan, once to Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, & Bahrain. I have been mobilized since Mar2003. Each of the before mentioned deployments were one year each. The other five years, I was at Fort Lewis training Soldiers to deploy around the world.

I hope I can start and enjoy my hobby now.... ;)

Thanks Jennifer,

I am back! I am back in the US. I just completed my last overseas tour. I cannot believe how tired I am. I keep breathing a huge sigh of relief.

Wow! You live in Sunnyvale, CA. I used to live in Cupertino, CA. Sunnyvale used to be one of my old stomping grounds.

Hello Jennifer!

        Good to have you aboard this Forum. I was wondering about the locomotive in your avatar, is that one from Niles Canyon? I'm going to have to get down there one of these days to check out thier operation.  Regards, Bob B.
