Feather River Canyon, April 17, 1976

These were taken on April 17, 1976 along the Western Pacific line
in the Feather River Canyon, northern California (northeast of Sacramento).

Western Pacific historic engine #164, fenced in and on display in Oroville, CA.

WP freight at west end of canyon, where the terrain into the valley is fairly moderate.

View of the canyon from a high point along the highway, with a freight on the line.

These photos were taken of a snaking Western Pacific freight train
from west to east (from the adjacent highway), as the terrain became more rugged.
