I never even thought about which way the trains would have to enter when I was delivering there. I only remember one locomotive running through there light from the south. Now after looking at the Google image I realize it was probably coming from Dairymans Feed which is farther south than H&B. they would have to go south then come north through the switch to enter Dairymans on a curved track. The circular trackage looks to still be in place when the image was recorded. Trucks entered from E. Washington St and circled around to the back side by the river. The rail and truck pits were next to each other I believe. I was wondering if it was part of the operating agreement they not use the train horns for the intown road crossings? I noticed the locomotive in this video didn't sound the horn for the crossing. The Cal Northern still sounds it's horn at all the crossings in Woodland although rather only briefly. I still remember listening to the fast freight that would come though at night sounding it's horn on the way to Davis. Seems like the CNRR barely gets up rolling speed now. Bob B.
Steve, you're awesome!! Who cares if you can or can't count, as long as you keep getting vidoes like this! Now that the NWP has revenue, maybe it's time to invest in a weed eater! Hows this for a public service anouncement-"Friends don't let the NWP ROW go without roundup!"

Ok, so getting old ain't too much fun! That should be Willow Brook not Creek, sheesh! I just Google maped H&B and realized the trains would come in from the north, not south? I used to come in on Old Lakeville Hwy from the south with the truck and grain hoppers. The truck pit is on the west side of the property. So now I think I know where the weeds are. The truck pit is shown in the video in the distance on the right where the round grain tanks are. I also noticed a set of truck grain hoppers on the pit dropping a load. Again a really great video! I feel much more oriented now. Bob B.
Nice!!! I especially like the way, early in the video, the train appears to be heading toward the camera, but no tracks are visible for all the weeds, and we're left thinking, "Surely that can't be the ROW!?" Also gives me the perfect excuse to buy some more HO C&NW covered hoppers. Thanks for sharing, Steve!
