WP Oakland roundhouse contents 1962
Author: masterphots

60 years ago I visited the WP West Oakland roundhouse and recorded what was inside.  I recently found my typed 'report' and thought it might be of interest.   Somewhere around here I have a few hand held Kodachrome ASA10 slides of the V&T engines....I'll post if I find them.

Glad you captured this detail and thanks for sharing it. That Lima Shay was built 5/31/1918 and now resides in Willits reportedly awaiting restoration.

All of that stuff still exists in one form or another except the "oil electric" Atlas critter:
