Cabforward

Saw today at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento the X4294, an AC-12 Cab-Forward from the Southern Pacific. It’s HUGE.

See today at Jamestown 1897 Railroad Park probably the only remnant of the ill-fated Yosemite Short Line, a 30″ boxcar home-built on a flat car.

Memories from the long gone Owens Valley Narrow Gauge, under Southern Pacific ownership.

Another pilgrimage: world famous Tehachapi Loop. A Southern Pacific achievement now run by UP/BNSF.
