Concrete bridge abutments are still extant at the Rogue River crossing just down stream and within site of the the highway 199 bridge in Grants Pass. The Y at the UPRR is evident on acme mapper 2.1 lining up with the bridge site.
I bought property on Wilderville Ln last year, I was told the pond on my property was put in by the railroad and it's on my deed, have find lots of railroad things on my property, would love more info on the railroad.
I recently acquired former SP business/office car "Alamo" #127 and was planning to take it to a right of way in SD; but, the requirements by SD DOT began sounding too much like I was not willing to work with. Yesterday I saw a post from someone in Grants Pass' Chamber of Commerce wishing the railcar would come to Grants Pass. Is it possible for any of the right of way from CORP connection to still be re-tracked and used? If I can operate it a couple/few miles with a small switcher, I would be interested in it coming to Grants Pass.
No way to operate other than on the UP-SP Y. Bridge over the Rogue long gone although I remember it, and just beyond it are crossings of a big intersection with hwy 99.
Does anyone know of any either abandoned, or not used right of way that is not a trail, that might be available for short excursions? YWRR is not interested in "ever" having any type of passenger operations on it. Since CORP's Rail America is now owned by G&W, I don't know if they have changed their no passenger equipment (even deadheading) on their tracks.
