Re: sewer pipes

One clay pipe manufacturer is Gladding McBean in Lincoln, California. They make some hunking big pipe sections of some sort from clay which is mined very close to the plant. Curiously, there doesn't seem to be, or to have ever been, a rail connection from the SP's Shasta Line into the plant. I've been past it many times since the late 1950s, and can't remember even bumping over disconnected rails in the pavement. Maybe it was so many, many years ago.

Kind regards,

most of the plants.
