Anyone who has ever been to Portola can back me on this one...it's not much for looks, but it sure does have some priceless pieces stashed around the yard. More photos at www.tailsnrails.com
That is the nice thing about Portola as a museum. It captures the feel of a railroad yard better than the State Museum in Sacramento. Not meant to be a slam against Sacramento by any means. I personally think they have there place and serve the railfan community and the public well. I like to think they compliment each other. We have a lot of projects at Portola and too few people to work on them all and even less money. Hopefully the SP 4404 will get the needed work on the prime move and paint done soon.
