Are you talking industrial structures here, or shops/office type stuff?

Industrial structures. I'm using Sanborn maps so almost all of them are based on the actual buildings at that location for dates between 1939 and 1952. Fortunately for me, many of the sites are still standing so I've been able to suplement the Sanborn map data w/ a variety of photos.

I haven't seen anything posted regarding the route in a long time. Is it still being developed or is it dead?

Dude,

do you know I almost gave up on that route??? THIS must be one of those routes I eagerly await yet don't talk about every day because you simply do not hear much about them (no pun intended).

Seriously guys, awesome work. As Dave, I'll be right in line when you guys actually come out with it! laugh.gif

EDIT: Mixed up names... blush.gif

I have to agree with you on this. I really need a route that is close to me (Davis).

I have been following the progress on this route for several years. I spent my teen years in the Bay Area and rode various trains from Oakland (Mole and 16th Street) to Sacramento, including the RDC.
I also made several trips on the San Joaquin Daylight, and one on the overnight trail (Owl?) I am eagerly awaiting its release; I'll be near the head of the line.

I needed a break and stopped work for a couple of months. Have returned to work but am not entirely sure how much work will get done before another break is called for. I have been at this a very long time and as far as hobbies go, the bloom is pretty much off the rose.

Dear David Nelson,

I can understand your approach to the project as this is a hobby. In Model Railroad magazine many of the train layouts have taken years to complete. We are lucky to be in a hobby that these layouts can actually be shared with others.

Yours truly,
Leland
