Hi, have enjoyed your train station blogs. We were just down at Oakland Western Pacific mole today. Tonight on google street view, noticed that possibly the train depot at 3rd and Washington has been repurposed, but is still around for Zeiger Engineers. sorry for the long URL here which goes to google street view (I hope):,+Oakland,+CA+94607/@37.7971813,-122.2769573,3a,90y,50.69h,74.72t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sdfoXF_WhrFw-XoJ7ECr9ZA!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x808f80b804b062e5:0x7c5457678e1ac6a3

Hi, again, I just ran across this interesting link about the building:
thought you'd like to see it.

Thank you, Janet. It is still a nice-looking building. It is nice to know that it still survives.
