Passenger trains on the NWP

I hang my head when I read on Eric’s blog, that some asked if there ever were passenger trains from Humboldt County to the Bay Area. Three passenger trains per day, and ten passenger trains in the southern end, all round trip, if I’m reading an old time table correctly in one the NWP books. Later years they dwindled down, eventually to be run by a single, self-powered Budd car.

This image was done by John West, Eel Rock, April 1969, of the Budd Car. Title: The NWP (SP) Budd car heads south from Eureka to Willits on its tri-weekly roundtrip through the scenic Eel River canyon.

If you want to find out more, you need to read the NWP books, plus there is a Historical Society.

For a look at passenger trains on the South End with pictures.

Cool! I would love to take the train from the Bay Area to Eureka.

If you want to see how the electric commuter schedule part of the NWP was, see Daniel’s site. One of those many injustices of life to see that go.
