Where's the freight?

I don't see any freight hauls other than the grain loads.  Are they able to deliver anything else anywhere on the line.  With the Dairy Farmers in tough straights the need for grain may soon diminish.

Sunday running?

Seems like NWP runs at anytime now.  Yesterday, they came by about four PM during the Super Bowl game.  I've seen or heard them on other days other than M,W, and F as well.  Yet other than grain hoppers and a wood car I don't see much other business. I hope they have a few Novato customers.

Where was 1922 stored?  I know they had a derelict located behind Petaluma station.  I don't know where it went too after it was used for police training.  But 1922 seems to have just appeared.  Was that kept at Shelville?

Sat. schedule?

They came high balling thru N. Mcdowell Petaluma  @ about 5PM Saturday.  Was this a special run?
