Woodman Creek Tunnel

"Compare this photo with one I posted a while ago for which I didn't know the location. Between the two Sean Mitchell photos, I think we can be sure that my posted photo, snagged on line from a rafting site, is Woodman Creek."

Woodman- Southbound

"Sean, I believe you have identified an unknown photo in my files. From the looks of the rocks and the tunnel, my photo snagged from a rafting trip site is Woodman Creek. Thanks!!!"

Woodman Creek Tunnel

"I'm still thinking about what those marks might mean, but I find it amazingly coincidental that John Hill indicates that all his photos were shot on July 1st, or 07-01, 1985. The "E" probably means East, as there's a shot with a…"

"Thanks guys. I love both of those links. No pics of Woodman in service though.  Question- In the EUKA set, I noticed that every single concrete lined tunnel he shot shows a paint mark on the right side, about chest height. It says…"

"I saw that they required to consider costs toward rebuilding Woodman bridge, but there is zero provision for the design at Bridge Creek, not to mention the multiple collapsed tunnels, and rails in the river.  I just wonder if it would better…"

Bay [T]rail from Samoa to Arcata to Eureka unanimously approved by NCRA

Looks like we might have trains again in the North Coast!!!



'. The board had just voted unanimously to receive a report from three of its directors, the ad hoc Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor Committee, and directed staff to bring back a resolution supporting “a broad-based Humboldt County community coalition to advocate for public and private funds with which to restore the Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor, including the provision of trail development therein.” The NCRA directors were so… Continue

i'm looking at the possibility of coming up to Eureka either 21st-24th or 27th-30th, would any of those days work for being able to access THA records on the Arcata and mad river railroad?

Sean   Go to Rob Kremer page. Look for discussion "who likes what" then go to that discussion page two. There are 4 photo's from Bob Cleek of an excursion train. Same units I believe, cars a little different.
