Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading

Outtakes of a video I made 25 years ago called "No Where in Particular" rather than let these scene's remain unseen I thought I would share the footage on Mark's Web Page. Look closely and you will see the three wrecked Baldwin's in Willits Yard. Additional scenes include a look at the junction to the west end line in San Rafael, and workers carefully watching one of the last trains through a crumbling Alto tunnel.

Scott, I believe this video was either flagged for a music copyright violation or because the copyright to the footage now belongs to someone other than Mr. Slivka, regrettably.  I'm hoping the new copyright owner actually makes the footage available at some point -- free or for a fee -- but don't know when/if that will happen.  Regards,

Mark D.

Thanks Tom. I have been researching area. I believe that the pre-Marinship NWP mainline was located on same position as that spur to the industrial arts building, and that the spur which went into Schoonmaker building was also same location as the NWP mainline pre-Marinship. These days you can see that the ground on this spur is much higher than surrounding fill which has, I believe, subsided.

 The location of the shots in question where in Sausalito. The old mainline went into downtown proper.  North of Sausalito near gate 6 a spur went to the industrial building warehouse. All part of the former Marinship ship yard.

 This spur had a few customers. I am only  guessing the tankcar was resin for the Bullard company which made hardhats there. Maybe Richard Custer can enlighten  us

oops forgot to post link:

It's the shot at 11:06.

Anyone know where this shot was? Tom, can you remember? I'm pretty sure it's Sausalito but I don't recognize the building and I presume it's been demolished. Any ideas?

yeah and at about 6:00 it's that building next to McPhail's that's in Slivka's picture of the last freight local in San Rafael with the team standing on the locomotive.

I absolutely love this! This is the first footage I've seen south of San Rafael - it has that branchline charm that would be a great inspiration for modeling. Great to see the infamous SP #10 RDC-1. Never thought I'd see containers on flatcars either - see 12:00.
