Covered in my blog: Locomotive Sand at Richmond


Northern California Santa Fe locomotive sand was less likely to be carried in Caswells than in SP G-50-10s and 12s for which there is photographic evidence.  It looked pretty white.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I think I can "go
forward" with this project ... except I'd like to know the
answers to the following 'extra credit' questions ...

Does anyone have any idea where the Santa Fe sourced
their sand for facilities in Northern California?
Or even a clue what color sand was used by the ATSF in
the same area?
