Skookum at Brightside in Niles Canyon Today
Author: danf

I've been meaning to check this one out since it arrived in the canyon recently. Not sure how long it will be visiting us here in California, so I didn't want to miss it this weekend.

Video and photo at Brightside, near Sunol, Ca. on 9/20/20.

I"m surprised they are allowing steam to run at all given the dry conditions and fire risk. Assume the railway is taking proper precautions.

It is an oil burner.

Here is a shot of Skookum taken in 2017 at the Oregon Coast Scenic where she was being restored to operation.

Do you have any word on work re-laying track toward Plesanton? Has Covid-19 or NIMBY's stopped progress?

Trackwork east has been postponed due to COVID-19 as you suggested, but is scheduled to restart early November. However prep work has been going on for some necessary upcoming bridge work at Happy Valley Road in Pleasanton.
