"The one thing I don't understand on this article is why change the grade? Tracks are already in place. I'll have to check with my Caltrain connections to find out the reasoning  behind this."

Hey Nick,  

We can always work out a visit.  The layout is a construction zone at present.  Probably best after the NSE.

I will be open at the SPHRRS convention in October as well.

Cheers!

Hmmmm...were sleepers still running that late?? I was under the impression that it was coaches only after WWII; could be wrong, though.

NIck,

What service years for trains 3 & 4 are you interested in? There could be slight differences in equipment based on the decade. Remember that Pullmans weren't used on this run until 1921 and were withdrawn by Pullman Co. in Oct. 1929. Inside those years there were at least 2 if not 3 sleepers in the average consist, with one (probably a rebuilt composite wood/steel pre-WWI Pullman 10-1 Plan 2410 car) going through from Willits to Ft. Bragg 7 nights per week. The rest ran through to Eureka and back.
