Just found your
wonderful and interesting site while researching a lot of vintage
photos I recently acquired. It has been very helpful to me. Thank
you for all of your efforts!
You've done a marvelous job at putting together
this WP web site. Just glancing quickly through the photos and
narrative, I recall so many faces and stories of the delightful
WP--and its Feather River history.
The site that you and others have created for
informational purposes on the Internet, is like a breath of fresh
air. I am EXTREMELY APPRECIATIVE for the effort put into this
documentation; there is a wealth of information offered. You’re the
best since Minnesota fishing was invented.
Thank You Again.
Greetings, I have been enjoying your wonderful
Oh what memories I have and they all come flooding back while surfing you site. My family has a summer home trackside near Two Rivers, close to Portola. I'm not old enough to remember steam...in fact I'm barely old enough to remember the California Zephyr.
But, thanks to the wonderful people who worked for the WP I have fond memories of the Zephyr and the WP. It was a CZ crew who invited me into the cab of one of those beautiful F-Units that introduced me to a life long love of railroads. I rode the CZ several times and witnessed the wash racks in Portola in action many times LOL!
Also thanks for the picture of the 2-8-0 number 36. I have the HO model of that but had not seen a picture of the prototype.
I want to thank you for your magnificent work
and considerable effort to expose the WP history to the web. I was
cruising for CZ data and came across your web site, and was consumed
for three hours reading. It is a beautiful and informative site, and
obviously the result of passionate
commitment and persistence. I hope that you can continue. A sincere
