Northwestern Pacific Railroad Network

Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading

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.

What about thier petaluma yard??? the tracks are there they would just need to be redone and a switch put in where the hopper cars are.

If Shamrock ships by rail it will be in Santa Rosa. They already have a spur or it's already graded really well, I can't remember. I do know it was originally switched by P&SR.

there only one track  going off the line in novato and that to the feed mill but that has not been used in a long time

I live in Novato and hope one of these businesses would ship via nwp. but I have doubts do to these reasons.

Kelleher get most of there wood form Eureka,

Novato builders supply is probably too small of a business to use rail,

and shamrock might close,

there's not many customers in Novato, 

here's a list.

Kelleher lumber

Novato builders supply


note there's also a feed mill in Novato. but the property is for sale and there are plans to re-develop 

also, the shamrock plant in Novato might close.
