North Western Posibilities

This is my first attempt at a blog, so here goes! Welcome, Folks! OK, I had an idea, what kinds of loads could be on the NWP in the near future? We know they have covered hoppers of grain for the two feed mills, and lumber for Standard Structures, but what's next? How about gravel export, a container port on Humboldt Bay, maybe wind turbine parts for the planned project on Bear River Ridge? I want your thoughts, what do…

Hi Zack;

 The Shellville yard I refer to is open and is south of the station. You can just see the hopper cars in the distance as you look from the station.   The train travels through the yard when it travels to Novato.  The engines are fenced in next to the green station building.  I suggest you key in Shellville, CA to Google or Mapquest to find the best way to it.

Hey Zach, my next NWP decline and restoration presentation is in July on the 19th in San Rafael, are you going?

Zach!  Sorry it took so long to accept your friend request, I haven't logged on in months! 

Have been crazy busy building our excursion train on the old SP Placerville Branch east of Sacramento.  Things are looking good, we are starting our second season of public rides Easter Weekend. 

Keep taking pictures, your work is really looking good.  Let me know if you get to Sacramento any time soon, we can do CSRM and then get you out on our ROW. 

Keep Rollin'!

Hi Zac.  Thanks for the welcoming.  Also thanks to Mr. Drury.  I ran across this site by accident while working security at College of the Redwoods.  As a long time member of the community and a 42 year employee with The Pacific Lumber Company, I've always been enterested in the history of the Company and the railroad system there.  I was close friends with some of the crew who worked old #29.  John Zimmerman the the engineer, Cecil Williams was one of the brakemen, along with Gurld Daniel.  Gurld is the one on the back of #29 when it was doing a switch.  I have posted on my site, a picture of #29 switching a box car up to the side of the old Fibre Plant where I worked.  Enjoyed looking at the pictures that are posted on this site.  As far as your Mom & Dad goes, good luck with getting them to join.  Best wishes

1.I'm on YouTube now! Not everything there is NWP or even train related-that's the only disclaimer. I am not asking you to subscribe or anything, but you can check it out if you want to. Please tell me by leaving a comment on this page if you click the link and it doesn't work at all, and I'll try to fix it.

YouTube Channel-

2.Sometimes (very rarely) I post on Altamont Press Discussion Board using NWPrailfanZMT as a handle, but I usually post under an anonymous one. AP reminds me of the comment section of YouTube, there is some good info, but also too many taking advantage of anonymity to troll and rant and cause trouble.

3.Now on Facebook-

Profile (yes, really me)-

Railfan Page (also me)-

Thank you Chad Gustafson and Sean M for liking NWPrailfanZMT on FB, and everyone else on this site is welcome to stop by and check it out! Unlike my YouTube, everything posted to NWPrailfanZMT on FB is train related, with a primary focus on NWP and SP, and any other railroad stuff I think is cool...

4.To be announced...
