Mark: Thanks for the welcome, I have a limitted  amount of pictures . As always the guy behind the camera never gets the shots, and it's hard to drive and photograph at the same time especially while working. I'll share as I can.    Tony

Mark, I have had PDF scans of the large maps I have of Scotia, South Bay and Eureka that show all the track layouts. Is there some way I can get these pdf's in the photo section? The quality is not the best, the paper has yellowed since I got them from SP in 1958! I do think the members would enjoy seeing them.

Thanks for the welcome, Mark.  I've been a fan of the NWP for pretty much my entire life.  I look forward to expanding my knowledge and modeling skills with the help of this website.

Thanks guys for the welcome and I enjoy this site.  We have good friends in Cloverdale and are really anxious to see if/when the NWPRR and SMART will benefit from the rr roadbed funding incentives included in the new Federal tax deal last December.

Mark  I have only been a member for a month or so ( watched the site for a couple of years prior). In that month I have reunited with two career railroaders from45 years ago and met two railfans also. Thank you so much for this site, and all the contributors as well. It all combines to help bring the NWP back to life. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Thanks. I'm a railroad history enthusiast down in Santa Cruz County. I plan to do some hiking on the NWP in the future (gorgeous area) and wanted to find others who are knowledgeable about the line. Looks like a great group!

hi mark:

good site, you have, question for you? on the main page, there is a rolling montage of photos, some i have been able to figure out, others, are  just lost in space, i assume that these mean something to the members who grew up on nwp territory, but for some of us who grew up in the bay area, and haven't haunted the nwp, these photos are meaningless, any chance you could get the photographers to identify what they are displaying or its relevance?

Hi Mark, thanks for the welcome!  I grew up near the "Dirty Harry Trestle" in Larkspur and just couldn't believe that trackage was just sitting there unused while traffic piled up on the 101 every day.  And those tunnels just sitting there while I was riding my bike in traffic over Wolfe Grade... like, hello???  Gridlock solution's sitting right there, rusting away!  Thanks for having me, and thanks to everyone who's documented the line, I'd always wondered what all that track leading to Eureka was about!  Good to see I'm not the only one who appreciates the NWP; the more I learn the more I love it.  Looking forward to learning more, --Andrea

Mark, I have posted, with Bob Hogan and the folks at the Espee site, a boatload of info about the NWP in the early 1950's. Its posted to the modelers group. I think many members would enjoy learning this data, but I am afraid it is being buried.

 

Any thoughts on how to get the word out?

Mark,

Thanks for the welcome.

My grandson wanted to add a video he took of some SMART activity in Santa Rosa. We loaded it to my iMac but didn't succeed in getting it on the website. Any suggestions. Thanks!

Mark, Appreciate the kind words! 

Your NWPRR.NET has been a terrific source of discovery, inspiration, and encouragement.  It's fun to share with folks with the same passion.
