A picture of NWP 605 in better times

This appears to be taken in the town where it was likely built, Tiburon, Calif.

Double click for zoom in.

(Tiburon, for you trivia fans, is spanish for "shark")

Baggage Car Update-Leave early, miss the fun

So I left early, figuring how much more could they get done. Quite a bit it turns out. In addition to removing the last of the attached pieces, they got an ID on the car!

Welcome NWP baggage car 605, formerly SF & NP baggage car #5, built in 1892, "retired" in 1939, back to the world! (NWP records say "condemned" as it is apparently also painted on the side. So disrespectful!
