As a member of the "On to Healdsberg" group on this site, I'm curious to know where is our lead Mike Cook on this important NWPRR subject. I for one having been waiting to see when a NWP loco would venture north to the yard where the Daylight car was stored and bring it to a place where it could be rebuilt to AAPRCO specs.
But given the car is now in Windsor, I'd be surprised if the car would be put on the rails to get to Napa. The RoW is now a certified FRA rail line and I'd guess that means that any car on the SMART rails must be certified to comply with FRA safety specs.
The SS yard would make a perfect site for someone to rebuild the car and outfit it with FRA approved trucks.
Chad Gustafson: Welcome home - and thank you for your Coast Guard service! Question: how much of the Daylight car is visible from the street? Just curious to know if there's a photo opportunity.
