Schedule Effective November 1, 1910 -- January 8, 2015

The Northwestern Pacific -- and its predecessors -- has always been one of my favorite railroads. This advertisement from the 15-January-1911 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 8:15am from Point Reyes Station and the 12:54pm from Cazadero are a remnant of the North Pacific Coast's narrow gauge steam service.
