I just came across this. I'm sure many of you have seen it, but it has some amazing photos. I'm still wading through them though so can't comment completely. Dave S. will love this, although I bet he's seen it already.

 Thankyou Tommy for the Great Photos!  It really gives you the idea that these places still exist,....but then the time machine catches up, and we see the modern day.  Wouldn't it be great to go back in time to those golden years of the NWP for just a few days?  Life was simple,....slow moving, and efficient.  Where are my Big Mac Overalls, my bandana, and my lantern.....who's got the trainorders?

I remember riding on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. under the conveyor that carried rock to the barges where the GG Ferry terminal is now. Lots of loose rock on the pavement, would not want to go under while it was working. There was a steam engine at Morgan Railcar for a while too.

Tom, Hutchison shipped by barge a lot right?

Beautiful  clear photos. Photo #1 is at Corte Madera not Baltimore Park. The photo looking north at Cal park tunnel shows the cars at Morgan railcar .Yes there was a Victoria station restaurant at Larkspur but I don't think they used these cars. Another converted Victoria station restaurant remains near Coffey rd. in Santa Rosa. The track  that went to the right was the Hutchison quarry spur. I only remember it having a car spotted there once.

this site has some great latter day photos of NWP in southern Marin in 70's and 80's. Scott Parnell will like this.
