Photo: Great Northern Tank Car 60234/Alhambra Water

This is a typical “rabbit hole” story. Yesterday I saw a photo of an HO scale layout with an interesting trackside building with a sign that read “Alhambra Natural Mineral Water”. A Google search revealed a photo of the prototype building that once stood in Martinez, CA. And a search of the company’s website revealed Great Northern Tank Car 60234, labeled for the company but with a Great Falls, Montana, location. The company still exists today, serving California and Nevada.
