Now for the 5 modelling pictures.


1) Barnes & Noble Bookstore at Jack London
2) Adeline Bridge going into the Port of Oakland
3) Port of Oakland ADMIN building, plus the local PG&E in the background on the left and right. (For those that attended the CalRailFans meet in Jack London a year or so ago, we were on the bottom right building in the picture.)

4) Jack London Square Amtrak Station.
5) A set of containers for the Port.

A lot has been done towards this and there is more to do. This is in the Oakland, CA area and the only street running on the CAL-P Route. Hope you enjoyed the pictures! More to come at a later date!

Expect at least a year. Got to create the rest of the buildings, which as one man will take 2 months per area.

You didn't miss the years represented. The area is pre-Feb 2007 and post-opening of the Amtrak Coach Yard (circa 2004)?
