E8- Mailtrain is maybe. Was there a Pontiac dealer there? Station Stop shows commute cars at a platform

Pretty sure neither of these are NWP.  Looks to be somewhere on the San Jose to San Francisco line, but I'll leave it up to others to identify where.

The wide platform and overview of the town makes the first one look like Palo Alto. Don't know about the second one except it looks like mid-peninsula, north of San Mateo but south of San Bruno. Similar trees line that section but are usually eucalyptus trees.

Doesn't look anything like NWP. Nice find, thanks for sharing.

The first photo is Palo Alto.

Second one has to be Burlingame--
nowhere else has trees that tall next
to the track. Like he said, first one is
Palo Alto.

Did Mohawk sell gas in California?

Is photo #2 in Atherton?
Author: DWDebs/2472

I think photo #2 is a San Jose - to- San Francisco commute at Atherton station. If so, then Fairoaks Lane is the grade crossing just past the (steam?) locomotive.

Number 1 - 99 at Palo Alto?  Lighting looks about right.  Gas station at 799 Alma St built in 1929.  Not sure what brands it was over the years.  Used to go there with Dad when Joe Rehm was running the place doing oil changes and light repairs.  Later years the gas pumps were gone but Dee Hileman, an old school cigar chomping hot rodder ran his auto repair business there.  He was still there in the 80's.  I don't know what is there now.

I doubt #1 is train 99, as she never carried head end cars in the era of Daylight painted E units.  More likely the mail train, though i don't recall ever seeing it behind E units.

Think the two mains at Atherton are still spaced
wider than the mains in pic 2. Someone go
and take a look.

In any case, don't think Atherton had a
eucalyptus wall like that to the west.
No place did, except Burlingame.
