Here is a relatively long and detailed video of East Bay and South Bay railroad action along former Southern Pacific lines through Fremont on the Centerville line, Coast Sub, Niles Sub, Warm Springs, and Niles Canyon Railway's Holiday Train of Lights.
Thanks for watching! Feedback is welcome...
Granite Rock Company No. 10 is an 0-6-0 steam locomotive built in 1942 by H.K. Porter for the Granite Rock Company. The engine was used for Granite Rock Company as a switcher. It resides at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, CA.
A year ago I was on the pass in the spring and other local railfans said the access to the loop was still restricted per the rancher who lives in the loop. He built a pretty significant fence and gate on the access road with "NO TRESPASSING" signs if I remember correctly. Bummer for sure...
I don't know much about when/how/why our "California Cars" were ordered, but I know that they follow the same dimensions as the Superliners with the exception of minor details like two double entrance doors and some of the stainless steel fluting on the sides. Thanks for watching Bill!
Looking more like the photo was taken in Oregon or Washington states, the daily MRVWS on the UP Martinez Sub accelerates in Run-8 through Rodeo (pronounced ROW-DAY-OH), California on a gloomy overcast day. This photo was taken from an overpass which conveniently had a hole in the chainlink fence.
Wow, this is a really nice photo. The different heights of the three locomotives is interesting to look at. Weird to see the old Amtrak California paint scheme without the arrows or Caltrans logo on the lead unit.
