"It appears to be a location that is double tracked. Could be near or in fact Fort Seward."

Hello Robert,

I removed the photo in question because it had nothing to do with the NWP or railroading.  Regards,

Mark D.

Hi Robert,

I copied your two snow photos and passed them to someone who found out some interesting information.

Here is what he said:

LONGVALE PICTURES – GEORGE JESENKO CAPTIONS

 

 

(Two Images were printed and sent to retired NWPRR Extragang Foreman George Jesenko at Dos Rios, California on January 11, 2012 for his identification.  Note the scenes were taken during snowfall)

 

Image 1:   Showing train of outfit cars with station building in background:

‘Those are definitely outfit cars – they could be B&B or they could be extragang, but an extragang usually had a lot more outfit cars, so I would guess that they were B&B.   I see ties on the car farthest back,I think, and I’ll get my magnifying glass to be sure.  They could be bridge ties.   That is the Longvale Depot, the water tank you can’t see in this picture because it was up on the hill above that water spout.’

Image 2:   Looking in opposite direction with track in foreground and buildings in the distance to the left of the track near hillside.

‘They are the bunkhouses that were north of the depot there, and the building on the righthand side – the old toolhouse – is still there to this day.  The bunkhouses were torn down sometime in the fifties I would say.  My uncle planted four redwood trees in there around 1948, and today they are probably 150 feet tall.  That snowstorm could have either been the one in 1948 – that was a pretty good one – or it could have been in 1937.  I don’t remember that one, but it was one of the biggest snowstorms around here they say.   Those are both taken at Longvale.  I hope that helps you out’.
