 In the 4/2011 Railroad Model Craftsman on page 16 is an announcement that Red Caboose has NWP, 1946-1952 stock cars. They also have SP models from 1946-47 and 1952. All are 39.95 each. Good to see…Continue

Wynn, Nice to be remembered. As far the the McMurray ranch, I went to school with Steve Hunter, his family lived on the ranch. My father was a sub mail carrier for Ralph in the 1960's.

No, I never got into Model RR.

I am building a fictional branch line of the Petaluma and Santa Rosa as if it ran today, from Petaluma to Grandview, a fictional town. and later i hope to build the california western. But it is a small, 4x8 switching layout.
thank you..

Wynn, I envy you your layout room! I currently don't have space in my home for a layout, with two small children and a wife who wishes to keep our guest room/office intact, but I'm in the process of joining the West Bay Model Railroad Association (, which is just a few blocks from my home, and they plan to tear out their existing layout (3 gauges) and rebuild in HO-only, so I'll be politicking for a little NWP space if that does happen (most of the people in the club are SP fans, but there's some interest in the NWP, as well). I'm interested in the 1948-1952 era, too -- please keep us updated on your plans and progress! Regards,

Mark D.

HI Chad; Sorry, I meant to say we are going to model in the early 1950s, 51 or 52. like all we can have both steam and diesel running. My wife lived and grew up on Grove street and saw a lot of trains. I was out on West Side Rd., so spent a lot of time waiting for trains to clear the Healdsburg Ave/West side junction.
Are you modeling NWP also and if so which section?

Hello Mr. Wynn,
I read your update that you are going to build the nwp in HO scale. i was wondering what era you are going to operate your layout.
Thank you..

Hi Wynn,
You are confusing me with another member, I currently do not have a layout. I am planning on doing the California Western at some point in time.
I am the Secretary of the NWPRRHS. I will send you a pdf of the plan and station map list if you'd like. Send me a private e-mail at
You can join the NWPRRHS Society for $35.00 per year and get 6 newsletters and 2 Northwesterner magazines with stories and articles about the NWP. Go to the Society's home page linked at the top of this site.

Hi Wynn,
The NWPRRHS has a great list of maps available. They are listed in the current Headlight newsletter for the Society. Allen Tacy, former Archivist for the Society, made station maps for most of the NWP right of way. Most maps are dated and show trackage and railroad buildings and some features around the station. I am the Society Secretary.
