Great videos, gotta love those high hoods!
Has anybody given a thought to stopping by H&B and asking when they expect deliveries and what time of day? If they give out the info then the railfans could setup photo shoots from the interchange point, north of Skaggs Island, Schellville, Sears Point, Black Point, etc., to Petaluma? Be easier than "listening for the horn" or running around just waiting for the train to showup. Just a thought anyway. I know when I delivered truck loads of grain into H&B the scale lady seemed quite friendly, it might be worth a try, a box of SEE's candy might help. :-)
The area the train is traveling on, in front of the depot, was not replaced. The section the train is approaching, across Washington Street was replaced when the main line bridge was rebuilt and raised above the 'flood plane'. A new switch was cut in at that time to serve Dairyman's spur as the old bridge over the Petaluma 'River' was removed as noted below.
