Hello.   Long time lurker, first time poster.    I've lived in Healdsburg for about 10 years and I've been into trains since kindergarten.  I grew up living across the street from the old West Shore…Continue

"Of course they did.  Ask any Italian living in San Francisco if his relatives made wine from grapes picked up from rail cars parked on the Embarcadero."

"The funding for the new crossing signals north of Windsor was actually given to NCRA.  Since SMART already had crews actively repairing/replacing crossing signals south of Windsor, the NCRA asked SMART to have their contractor install the new…"

"Tommy correct. Picture was taken South of the 101 overpass looking North. You can see the 101 overpass in the distance if you zoom in."

"I don't know how much clearing was done because of reopening vs just standard fire hazard clearing. The NCRA is pretty notorious for needing a kick in the butt from local fire departments to get that done. New gates and bells were installed by…"

"They've done some clearing though, and installed some new gates and arms on some of the line north of the depot. The line looks clear all the way to and including the siding that begins on the south end of Healdsburg, look north and south when…"

"NWP/NCRA does not have funds to rebuild to Healdsburg just yet, which doesn't allow the FRA to open that stretch of line. "

"Its not SMART, its a lack of money in the NCRA/NWP and no FRA inspection. No improvements have been made north of the Windsor depot (MP 62.2). "

"Yup Joe is right on the location.  I thought the picture was of the spur that is sitting NORTH of 101 and shows on the Google map.  But I still disagree that the old NWP did not haul wine grapes.  Again, the history books of SF tell…"

"Case solved! Read earlier post, or visit the tasting room. Finished wine was no stranger to the NWP, however as time progressed transportation in tanker cars that had no baffles within them irritated the wine and effected it's quality in the…"

"A question to "Joe" who posted this picture.  The area according to SPINS is identified as "Grant" but there is both a Grant Ave and a Grant School road.  If you Google map Grant Ave you will see where it crosses the…"

"I can believe all of that about Foppiano but this spur in the picture is north east of 101.  Of course the freeway is new but there is a RoW much closer to the winery south of 101 and they could have easily had a spur for tank cars much closer…"
