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.
Full steam for Shay #10 in the woods under Fish Camp, CA on the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine RR.
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.
Went over Bixby Bridge on the Highway 1. Impressive…
Where modern-era model railroading began with John Allen’s Gorre & Daphetid. Inspiring place, a great moment.
