"1922 is most likely side-lined because it is a leased unit without PTC (Postitive Train Control) installed. As such, it cannot run solo on any active portion of the SMART tracks. (at least not without special dispatching) I do miss seeing it out and…"

SMART Test Trains at Santa Rosa Railroad Square

On April 21st, 2017, I caught SMART testing two train in the same block, minutes apart. The first northbound train, 101, arrived at 7:38. The second northbou...

Joseph Muller replied to Richard C. Brand's discussion NCRA April Board Meeting
"Chad,    I don't know for certain how it would be done, but I think the alignment would be a right-hand switch off the main from the south. The reason I think it would be this is due to the service area and structures for the County…"

"The Rohnert Park spur is for Innovative Molding, over on Valley Park Drive. They would receive inbound plastic pellets and possibly ship product out."

Washout at Healdsburg

When walking the Foss Creek Pathway in Healdsburg, I found this rather nasty washout behind the Silveira car dealership. Another heavy storm and there won't be anything left under the rails!

The Novato Fence

"I think the fence looks fine. SMART is choosing to install fencing along the right-of-way within city limits. That's their perogative. Once regular service starts, they can't have people walking the tracks like now with only a couple…"

"Looks like the paint booth at Alstom's Mare Island facility. The light package seems to match the 2700 block of SP's late switcher fleet, though I assume the number, 1501 is new, as it doesn't match any SP roster info I could find."
