    Do you know when the picture was taken?

    It was when W.P still owned their own track. There is no way for me to know when it was taken. I'd have to find the picture first to know any history about it. Sorry about that.

    No worries, passenger movements on the Keddie to Klamath Falls line are interesting to me.

    I originally was looking for any type of Great Northern, passenger train anything from a mail train, mixed freight to a officers special that might have come all the way down to Sacramento.

    I went back and re-read the original post and wondered out loud how anyone could follow that. I write in rough draft form and usually come back to finalize. So you have unfinished thoughts running into each other. Sorry about that, or not. Grin!

    I'm looking for a picture of what I remember to be a passenger train standing in front of the Sacramento Western Pacific Train Station. A passenger train parked out in front of it with people out and around it. O ogling over it. If memory serves me correctly it had Great Northern and Western Pacific passenger cars. Most noteworthy a Great Northern Streamline style passenger car. This could have been added to the California Zephyr, but then you'd have to explain the W.P. Heavy Weights in the consist. This could have been the last run of the California Zephyr, or some such.

    Pretty sure I own that picture. But still unpacking and still haven't found it. All my books are packed away. I'm sure you know the drill. Heavy stuff on the bottom and lite weight stuff on top. So, it's going to be awhile before I get to the bottom of things.

    Best news I've started work on restoring my old layout. First things first, it needs to be cat deloused (scent of cat removed) and then legs installed.

    Fan of the Milwaukee Road, SP&S, NP and the Southern Railway. I also model a proto-freelance Southern Railway coal branch.

    And I forgot, chalk it up to middle age, the Soo Line. Modeled it and miss the real Soo.

    Yes, I'm a fallen flag modeler. As I started on the C&O, I'm modeling that plus I'm building what I'm calling the Predecessor Yard. It will be filled with rail cars and locos from the Flags of the road that make up CSX Transportation.

    Trying to...I grew up along Metra’s North Central Service/WC’s track. My focus was on Metra but I’m building up my WC fleet right now. Three gondolas, six boxcars, and a non-proto autorack (with seven more to convert) in WC scheme with a 5 each CN gondolas and autoracks mixed in. Pulled by CN for now. No WC locomotives yet but they are on the way.
