"The Northwestern Pacific Railroad was promoted as the "Redwood Empire Route" and featured 300 miles of railroading through rugged, geologically active Northern California terrain.
"Built primarily to serve the timber and lumber industry, the NWP operated as a subsidiary of parent company Southern Pacific during the era of color photography.
"This is an in-depth look into the operation of the railroad's freight and passenger service - a revisit to the Petaluma & Santa Rosa Railroad, and a review of the Maintenance-of-Way equipment that kept the railroad in service."
