"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? "
"I removed your comments, Fred, as they're focused on speculation about the motives and characters of others rather than on the NWP or railroading (and the basis of your speculation is tenuous, in any case). This same behavior was seen in…"
"I'm starting a layout inspired by the NWP in Humboldt County during the transition era, and this thread has been a great help! I've gotten the Stindt book, Vol 1, and the NWP Willits to Eureka, and the newer NWP RR Book.…"
"Anybody know the history of NWP MW 850? That's the old water car that sat in Petaluma for years. It was previously an SP MW car, but I don't know the number. I also don't know when the NWP "acquired" it. Any help would be…"
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
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.
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.
I am seeking to get some of your SMART videos to add to a video I am making about SMART construction. I do not live in your area so what video I have is when ever I am there. I need the operation of the SMART cars which I have seen on this site. Is there a way to get them off the site or do I need to buy some from you? Please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org Victor
