Well, more importantly, the railcar LOOKS like it has rocket assist. It was our entry in last year's Handcar Regatta in Santa Rosa (http://handcar-regatta.com/).
The criterion is that the handcar, railcar, or giant hamster wheel that you run on the tracks must be human powered. Beyond that, the rules are pretty loose.

Mark,

I worked for the NWP, the Eureka Southern, and the North Cost. I was the last Road Foreman of Engines for the ES and NC. I have a lot of pictures I could contribute to the photo files of for the Eureka Southern. I don't know if anyone wants them on the site, for reasons unknown to me no one seemed to like the ES and I even had trouble at one point jointing the NWP Historical Society because I worked for the ES. I took a lot of photos in the Eel River Canyon. I simply stopped my train got off and hiked up the hill or what ever and took a photo.

Hi Mark,
Nice work on the page. I appreciate your efforts.
I grew up in Freestone and used to hike along the old NPC rail line. I've gotten interested in the local railroads again since building a railcar for the Handcar Regatta in Santa Rosa last year.

Thanks for the intro Mark, this will be a fun site. I grew up in Novato with are model railroad club in the old passenger depot. I remember watching 6+ SD9s rolling through with 100+ cars headed north, what great memories. - Mike
