Did the SP ever operate FM switchers on the NWP?

Thanks Bob! We've only been in this area about 5 years and that was actually my first trip out to the Brazos Bridge. I saw the bridge in the lowered position from the elevated portion of the Hwy 12 crossing upriver so I GPS'ed my way to Brazos and happened to arrive as the trainset was just getting ready to cross the bridge after leaving the interchange with the California Northern at Lombard. I go through Schellville fairly often on the way to Napa.

Why did the Golden Gate Rail Museum move out of Niles Canyon?

Because the agreement between themselves and the Niles Canyon folks for "temporary" housing expired.

You see the size and font of the cab number on the SP GP? That's how the cab number on NWP 1501 should look.
