Northwestern Pacific Railroad, Eureka to Willits

Northwestern Pacific Railroad, Eureka to Willits

from 19.79

by Susan J.P. O’Hara, Alex Service & the Fortuna Depot Museum. "The year 2014 marks the centennial of the completion of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad (NWP), celebrated by driving a 'golden spike' at Cain Rock in October 1914. This achievement was the culmination of a massive, six-year engineering effort to connect rail lines ending at Willits with the early lumber company railroads of the Humboldt Bay region."
