"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.…"

"Anyone ever modeled the Interurban? I'm gathering information so I can plan my next layout. It will be a Marin County based, set between 1925 (ish) and 1935 (ish) so as to include as much variety as possible: narrow gauge, dual gauge,…"

"Hi Jennifer, thanks for the link. The label on the box has Howell Day, rubber stamped over M. Dale Newton Co. so late fifties is a good guess. Thank John. "

"I found this Red Ball kit on ebay, I couldn't resist. Don't know if I well ever build it but I thought it was cool. It is interesting how many manufacturers have don the N.W.P. Over night scheme. Any body know when this kit was made? "

Hi Mark,
Thanks for having me on. I just hired on with the NWP the other day and am looking forward to combing the site for history about the railroad.
Cheers!

Hello Mark,

Would you check Steve Richard Bell's comments for today. He's testing the water to see how far he can stretch the envelope about politics and religion.

Mark:

Just saw that you are the West Bay w-site guy.  Take my kids over to the building frequently so I've probably met you.  You can see my g'son in the picture of our Train of Lights ride last night.

Hello Mark,

I saw these items on ebay and thought of your club...

Old photo album of trains and wrecks.

Circa 1920's German toy train in pretty good condition

The train of my childhood, which I still have in mint condition, is one from Sears.

Six unit Happy Time electric train.  Does something like that have any retail value?  Or, is it just for memories?

Glad to join in,

Gura

Thank you Mark. I'm glad to be a part of this historic line. I think the membership will find my profile interesting. I'm in the excursion train business and we are launching the service between LA & Vegas later this year. www.vegasxtrain.com I think there are some excellent possibilities on the NWP as well for a wine train. More to come on my profile. Interested to see how the members feel about it. - mb

Thank you! I will tell my friends! Do you happen to know anything on the lease of 1922? Thanks!

Mark,

Just an update for you here. I resolved my profile pic upload problem with the help of a forum on the NING website. It said that usually when a profile pic fails to load it's a browser problem so I switched to Google Chrome as they suggested and problem solved. Just wanted to pass this along for you in case you get the same issue with anyone else.

Thanks Again,

Joey M.

Hey Mark, is there any news on the northern end of NWP? I heard about a proposal for a tourist railroad, did that ever get into action? I was also wondering when SMART would get up to healdsburg or Cloverdale, its been too long since a train has been up there. Ok, final question, :P. Is the Russian River track still in good shape? I mean, if it was, we could send a repair train up from the southern end, and we could slowly repair the railroad.
