Yeah, me too :D Now it's Sierra Northern, but I still call it the California Western.
I always think CA Western when I see "CWR." :-)

CWR-Continuous Welded Rail.
They're replacing track from Santa Rosa to San Rafael with CWR and Concrete Tier, for the SMART Trains. After service starts up between there, they will extend it south to the GG Ferry Terminal at Larkspur and north to Cloverdale. The NWP will reopen the line for freight from Windsor to Willits soon.
Does this mean that NWP can't make it to Windsor ? , or is this a new track in Santa Rosa.
Interesting to actually watch a track being put together. Thanks for the view.
Hi Phil-Those fellas have to be nimble footed and they might be good dancers; in the old days they were probably gandy dancers.
These days, who knows. They might be called "concrete tie technicians."
The most impressive guy I saw all day was the guy operating the big machine that picked up and placed the rows of ties. That guy was a master of delicate manipulation!
The fellas with the pry bars, are they gandy dancers.
