Bay Area NTRAK Clubhouse
The Club meets in the Wells Fargo room of the historic Crockett Railroad Depot.
The club's portion of the depot is the left side (as seen in the picture), entering through the large freight doors. The right side, which was the historical passenger section, is a museum dedicated to the area's part in WWII. The C & H Sugar factory can be seen in the background. The Carquinez bridge is just west of the depot.
The club room features a large window that can be used for watching the main line rail traffic that passes along the waterfront between the depot and the sugar plant. It can also be used for watching some of the sugar loading operations at the plant. Many trains, from UP freight and container trains, to AMTRAK California passenger trains, go by at regular intervals.
The Club's Layout
The pictures below show some of the club's layout. The layout still features long mainlines (using the traditional red, yellow and blue NTrak lines that make continuous loops).
The Yard is used for staging. There are several stubs and branches for operations and switching. There is a new engine facility and roundhouse.
