I just saw their "new" GP9 painted in beautiful SP Bloody nose and I have heard the they are getting a GP40-2 that is currently at Mare island.
GP9 #1922 was from the Burlington Northern.
The first car has arrived on the CFNR and we will be picking it up tomorrow around 10am with an estimated delivery time to Santa Rosa of between 4 and 5pm, however when 1922 made a trip to Windsor last December I was told would arrive between 4-5 P.M. and it ran through Penngrove around 3:30. I would expect it as early as 3 P.M.

I just won a chance to go to state history day with my historical paper on the Transcontinental Railroad. To go to state I have to improve my paper by adding sourches and information. If anybody has friends, relatives, books, and connections I could tap into for information, please post and contact me for information.

I know of the 2 swing bridges of Black Point and Petaluma and the lift bridge at brazos and have a couple of questions?
1. How do they get to the Black Point bridge? by boat I assume.
2. Do the have to walk to the top of the Brazos bridge to operate?
3. Any other moveing bridges on the NWP, either working or nonworking?
thanks, Mike Davis
