  I thought that the centerbeam flat cars went loaded to Windsor and returned empty. This last video on October shows loaded centerbeam car southbound with 8 grain hoppers from the two grain receivers. Does Standard Structures receive loads and ship loads?  Anyone know?  Thanks, Steve

P.S. Where are the two grain receivers located. Am currently in Walnut Creek on vacation and will be returning to Seattle via U.S. 10l  from San Francisco. Might want to see the rail car receivers in Petaluma, Santa Rosa and Windsor. Easy access to them from 101?

Heading north on 101 I recommend you exit at Lakeville.  The exit is a sharp U and you will end up facing south and the swingbridge over the Petaluma River.  At the light, hang a right and you're on Lakeville which parellels the ROW.  In about a mile you reach the station with Dairymen's rising a little further on.  After the crossing is the Hunt and Behrens complex on the left and if you continue on you cross their siding.  At the light is Petaluma Blvd, again taking a right you can go to the next light, take a right at Payran Street and see the siding they use to gain access to H&B.  Hope this helps.

Steven, Standard Structures was recently bought by an outfit in Idaho I believe, and some of the employees were laid off. Since that time, they haven't received any inbound loads of lumber. I understand the Idaho parent company wants this load of lumber at another of their locations. I don't know if this is a one time thing or if it's now their standard operating procedure.
