    Despite having the "Napa Valley Wine Train", the North Bay of San Francisco has a second, lesser known wine train. This train is in conjunction with NWP/NVRR and the Eureka Southern. There are 16 some-odd wineries in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County, and the train stops 3 times for these 16 some-odd wineries. This morning, as the skies cleared, I caught this train using un-usual power, the NVRR 5076 and EUKA 4401 instead of the usual NWP SD-9 bookends.

    After this train tied down in Cloverdale, I heard the last day of the MoW Rail train calling signals. I managed to get up to CP Pieta and the downhill side of Ridge Summit just in time to catch the UP 6516 and 7523 coming through. I then caught them again at East First Street in Cloverdale as they sat and waited at the intermediate for a S.M.A.R.T. trainset to clear CP Cloverdale. Coming down Ridge Summit, you can just hear the Dynamics screaming for miles!

    Regards,

    -Frank C.

    I managed to catch the "Redwood" running a mere 5 minutes behind the advertised today. As I was waiting to head over from Hopland to Clearlake, it came cruising into Hopland Depot. I then detoured and caught it again leaving Hopland, arriving Cloverdale and Healdsburg.

    Two whole weeks without Frank? You haven't by chance gotten an early start on the 150th Anniversary, have you?
