Really cool historic photo!
Hello Airjohn and Drafter--I'm with the Treasure Island Museum (on Treasure Island in San Francisco). Can either of you tell me where the truck is now? We're thinking of doing an exhibit about the puppet rodeo and would love to have some contemporary photos of the truck.
Thanks very much--if you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'd be very thankful!

That is my "speeder" there. It is a Canadian CBL from the Canadian National Railroad.
Nice sgot there, is that a Rio Grande?
I recommend the CPRR website to anyone interested in the history of the first transcontinental railroad. The particular page you mention has moved here.
Looking at this picture you can see that gunyte cement was applied to the inside of the tunnel walls, it stuck to the granite rock that the tunnel was bored through. That is why you will see rocks on the outside of the curved tunnel structure. Even after the earth was removed to "day light" a part of this tunnel the original rock still remains there on the outside.
Hill of Crosses, can you tell me more about this photo?
