Author: 3rdswitch

. . three more WP on cheap film in dark conditions that required some work but none the less can't be done again;
top: a westbound near Palermo, CA south of Oroville 12-75.
middle: an eastbound just out of Oroville yard passing through downtown 3-79.
bottom: the eastbound San Jose Turn near Pleasanton, CA 3-79.

Always love seeing WP stuff! Thanks!

921 is, of course, still with us in Portola. Working on getting her repainted soon (along with 917).

The morning EB San Jose train was symbolled "SJP" (for "San Jose Perishable").

Best regards,

Once all the WP trains from various points got to Oroville, how many trains could you see on a busy day?

Trains came from:

--BN via Inside Gateway (3)?
--Sacramento (1)? collecting cars from Woodland, Sacramento, Port of Sacramento and Clarksburgh?
--Stockton (2)?
--Tidewater Southern (1)?
--Sacramento Northern to Pittsburgh (1)?
--Oakland (3)? some to Oakland Army Base, some to Alameda Belt Line, some to WP customers
--Milpitas (1)? Ford Fast to auto assembly plant
--San Jose (1)?
--San Francisco (1)?

That's 14 trains each way, or 28 per day. Am I close?
