Northwestern Pacific #2 -- June 17, 2010

The Northwestern Pacific -- and its predecessors -- has always been one of my favorite railroads. This advertisement from the 16-October-1909 San Francisco Call describes its standard gauge steam service north through Marin and Sonoma counties, which had not yet reached Eureka, and its standard gauge third-rail suburban commuter service in Marin County. The trips from Point Reyes (Station) to Cazadero and Duncan(s) Mills are a remnant of the North Pacific Coast's narrow gauge steam service.
