"Found this story funny...and sad. Lagunitas, one of the original "stick it to the man" breweries, accepts buyout from "the man."   Sigh."

"It must be a bad case of nostalgia. Railroading here in Tallahassee is almost non existant. CSX runs through here, but only a couple times a day. Glad to see you on. Hope is all ok with you and the fam."

You may remember this one from Disney's California Adventure Theme Park.

"I know this is an old conversation, but Pentrex has been putting the Today's Northwestern Pacific DVD in their sale flyer for the past year.  $10 is an excellent price!"

"The frames are bent on both units.  More likely they'll be scrapped out. Maybe the main of one can go into 4304....."

"Ah yes I can see how the front of the frame is bent in Matt's fine hi-res post. Looks like the pig catcher has been removed and coupler gone too.  I'm surprised they stayed on the rails when they hit."

Matt, you asked how many windows are on the sides of the double decker cars in Willits, on Tim Hallman's photo-http://nwprr.net/photo/willits-13?context=latest. There's 16 windows on the sides. So, are they ex Metra or not?

Hey, Matt. Good to have you. Nice to know people from the big midwest know what the heck the NWP is!

Welcome to the NWPRR Network, Matt!  Please take a look around and let me know if you have any questions or comments. We're adding content daily and actively recruiting new members -- please feel free to invite your own friends if you think they may be interested. Regards,

Mark Drury

 

P.S.  I'm a big fan of the CFNR GP15s, as well -- I have a couple of the Proto 1000 HO scale models released a couple years or so ago.
