Zach, I'm still looking for alignment detail foe Newburg Spur off NWP main at Fortuna(was it just along Newburg Road?  Ever heard about Cemetery trolley?

Thanks for the tip about the deleted video, Zachary -- I went ahead and removed it from the network.  Regards,

Hi Zack;

 The Shellville yard I refer to is open and is south of the station. You can just see the hopper cars in the distance as you look from the station.   The train travels through the yard when it travels to Novato.  The engines are fenced in next to the green station building.  I suggest you key in Shellville, CA to Google or Mapquest to find the best way to it.

Hey Zach, my next NWP decline and restoration presentation is in July on the 19th in San Rafael, are you going?

Zach!  Sorry it took so long to accept your friend request, I haven't logged on in months! 

Have been crazy busy building our excursion train on the old SP Placerville Branch east of Sacramento.  Things are looking good, we are starting our second season of public rides Easter Weekend. 

Keep taking pictures, your work is really looking good.  Let me know if you get to Sacramento any time soon, we can do CSRM and then get you out on our ROW. 

Keep Rollin'!

Hi Zac.  Thanks for the welcoming.  Also thanks to Mr. Drury.  I ran across this site by accident while working security at College of the Redwoods.  As a long time member of the community and a 42 year employee with The Pacific Lumber Company, I've always been enterested in the history of the Company and the railroad system there.  I was close friends with some of the crew who worked old #29.  John Zimmerman the the engineer, Cecil Williams was one of the brakemen, along with Gurld Daniel.  Gurld is the one on the back of #29 when it was doing a switch.  I have posted on my site, a picture of #29 switching a box car up to the side of the old Fibre Plant where I worked.  Enjoyed looking at the pictures that are posted on this site.  As far as your Mom & Dad goes, good luck with getting them to join.  Best wishes

Hey Zach!! Sorry to get back to you so late but I'm having email notification problems with both this site and faceboook..working on it now.
I have heard that on Altimont press they have been bashing us, saying that if you want to get "nasty" to come over here. Same thing, more dramatic on the FOAM group. I'm a member of FOAM, and I step in to defend us when possible.

Hey Zachary, the "Invite More" feature has been on the network from day one, I think, but it's not all that obvious.  We've had a few members use it over the past couple years and it seems to bring a good number of new people into the fold, so please do make use of it if interested.  Thanks!

Zachary, Read your comment re: doctors, very true with some, not all. Very common with the RNs though. I see it daily, I go into an isolation room, gloves, gown, mask if required. Nurse pops in to fiddle with IV's etc, no protection for themselves or the patient if in neutropenic isolation.

I was reading some old headlights and I saw something in there about a house fire in Alton in the 1960s. The house in question belonged to MR. and MRS. Robert Tolar, I was wondering are they relatives of yours?

Thanks for the feedback on the More button, Zachary!  I'm glad you like it, and it should make a whole bunch of other members who have been asking for it happy, as well.  Now, on to a dedicated Activity page!  Regards,

They usually reserve some for walkups. Plus a couple off rides are not sold out

Hi,

We did use both of the CCT engines from time to time. I have used the 42 on regular trips to Scotia, work trains, and a good day as a pusher engine from Fort Seaward back to Willits.

I tried to upload this pic of the car's number but it didn't "take."  So I'll try it again.  - Harry

I had replied here but accidentally deleted it, Zachary.  From a couple pics I took in about 2000 and 2009,  the standard-gauge car, apparently used for storage when the A&P was in operation, does appear to have been an ex-SP car.  Several numbers had been painted over, revealing then, "A-P  _2753_"    The "P" and "2753" appear to be original.  The "A" almost certainly covers what had been an "S," and it looks like there were single digits before the 2 and after the 3.  Both look like they're rather thin in width, lending me to suspect that it may have been SP 127531. 

 

Not knowing Espee's numbering systems, I've emailed out to some SP buffs to see if that number is likely.  I'll let you know what I hear back, or or perhaps you or someone on this group already knows?

Hello Zachary,

 

I was on a backpacking trip for the past five days, just returned last night -- sorry it's taken so long to get back to you.  I can guarantee you there would great interest in the Creamery ad if you were to scan and share it -- I believe we have more than one member who is modeling that area.  And I wouldn't worry too much about copyright issues so long as you credit the photographer and publication, perhaps with a link to the paid content.  I've done this a number of times and have suffered no repercussions to date.  Thanks for checking!
