I highly recommend Roger Graeber's "The New Northwestern Pacific Railroad Co." video on DVD (2 discs / 2 hrs.). This high quality video covers NWP and associated rail operations during the time frame 1964 to 2011. Disc-1 opens with a brief and simplified history of railroad operations beginning with the devastating Christmas Flood of 1964. A rare 1965 audio clip featuring quotes from C. E. Neal (VP and GM of NWPRR) describing the severe fiscal and operational impacts suffered by the NWP is heard while sobering images of catastrophic track and bridge damage are shown. Roger also describes the evolution of rail operations beginning in 1984 with the Eureka Southern. Rare vintage photos and video clips show the Eureka Southern, North Coast Daylight, North Coast Railroad, California Northern, and Railways, Inc. The current NWP story is continued with resumption of regular rail service in July, 2011 by the Northwestern Pacific Railroad Co.
Just got through watching a great video. Great job Roger! Great summary of the beginning and 1st (partial) year of operations.
oops!! I did not mean to imply that this is a blu-ray DVD. The NWPco 2011 is a STANDARD DVD but plays with HD resolution in a 4X3 aspect ratio. You can play it on a standard tv with a Normal DVD player. Sorry Roger
The new NWPco 2011 DVD is now available 2 discs 2 hours Best viewed from a blu-ray player on an HDTV. Features Cab Ride, Night video, all Four customers, track work and both engines. Available from www.nwprrhs.org
Another superb video Roger, Thanks for doing this and donating the results to the NWPRRHS.
A great video, thanks for sharing!
the tracks go about half a mile past the depot. after that thy've been ripped up, but you can still see remnants at crossings.
How much farther do the tracks go north from Schellville? Do they ever go past the station where they park?
Video is available from NWPRRHS.org also I will have them for sale at Winterail. I had to make a minor change that is why you have a new one on the web
