Everything on This Trip Was a Highlight

Sierra No. 3, which was the Hooterville Cannonball from Petticoat Junction and my second favorite TV show of all time, Green Acres.

Keddie Wye on the former Western Pacific is just a unique location.

Southern Pacific 4-8-4 No. 4449 is my western favorite as Norfolk & Western 4-8-4 No. 611 is my eastern favorite.

During my 1991 trip to California and Railfair it was difficult if not impossible to narrow down the highlights because there were so many steam locomotives, including Union Pacific Nos. 844 and 3985 and Southern Pacific 4449.

There also were the vintage F units, the Napa Valley Wine Train, the Feather River Canyon and the collection at the California State Railroad Museum.

But here are the three I chose as my favorite memories from this trip.
