Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading
Former North Coast Railroad 3804 leaves the NWP and is pulled to CFNR interchange to be sent to her owner (BUGX) in Stockton. 3804 first came on to the NWP in 1992 with five other former SP GP9s including 3190, one of two surviving passenger service "Torpedo tube" GP9s out of the only four the SP ever owned. It served the NCR for four years, and the 1996 incarnation of the NWP for two before they shut down. The 3804 sat in Willits until 2001 when it was moved south to Petaluma in a special hospital train. It subsequently sat there for 10 years until 2011 when in one of it's first move, the new NWP moved it to Schellville where it joined other BUGX locomotives. As on 12/11/2016 3804 is the first of BUGX equipment to be moved out and will be followed by the rest in a short time.
