2016 Niles Canyon Train of Lights

"Peter... The 2467 blew the left cylinder out when it was being moved (pulled by diesel but under steam for lubrication) to Oakdale for a PLA excursion over the Sierra Railroad.  It was returned to Sacramento and is currently on display in the…"

2016 Niles Canyon Train of Lights

"Richard....Why would you say such a thing?  The PLA and the NCR are then same organization so there is nothing to go sour.  The NCR operates with a general manager who reports to the PLA president and the PLA Board of Directors.  As…"

Ho 1501

"Matt... A terrific job of the #1501 MP-15!!!  Heck, it looks better than the prototype. Now if we could just get someone at NWP to add-back the Mars lights on the left side and the red signal light in the center on the real #1501.  That…"

The Redwood 1956-1

"Richard... The original "Redwood" used regular ex-Daylight/Hustler Chair cars.  The revived "Redwood Daylight" used some of the former SP Shasta Daylight Chair cars.  These are some of the cars stranded on the NWP and…"

The Redwood 1956-1

"Wonderful to think about. As always, your modeling is first rate. Am I correct that the Redwood Daylights used the Shasta Daylight cars now stranded on the NWP? SP/NWP tried to make a go of passenger service in 1958, but the public preferred their…"

Bob's S Scale NWP "The Redwood"

"Just for grins I shot some images of what NWP's "Redwood" might have looked like if service began in 1956 instead of 1958.  Gotta love those Daylight colors when compared to the actual Silver/red train. Bob Hogan"

Robert Hogan replied to Richard C. Brand's discussion SP Daylight coaches stranded along the line
"Just a reminder that the former SP cars were the extra-large window Chair cars built by Pullman Standard for the new 1949 Shasta Daylight.  Identical extra cars were also ordered for the Coast Daylight in 1952.  The cars on the NWP were…"

2 PHX MV&MT #498

2 PHX MV&MT #498

"This is a superb photo, taken, I'd say, in 1896, right after the Mt. Tam. line opened.  That's E.M. Jake Johnson running the engine;  he brought in the first mule (this one) and ran the last, #8, scrapping the line in 1930.…"

Other end of the NWP: Napa Jct.

I've posted three pictures of Napa Junction from August of 1966.  SD-7 #2736 is newly "patched" and renumbered from #5329.  This engine worked The Redwood and many freights on the NWP and is boiler equipped even at this late date.  I've also included a close-up of the nose so modelers can see the front end detail and the Mars light attachment detail.  

I'll post two pics of Schellville shortly.

Robert, the photos you contribute are so outstanding and interesting I just want to feature all of them!  You might consider creating an album the next time you upload images so I can feature the album rather than individual images (though don't feel like you have to -- we'll take the photos any way we can get them!).  Thank you so much for your contributions!  Regards,

Mark D.
