Well I saw a picture of something quite familiar to you guys over at DCA.
I cried from getting my town (sort of) Recongnised!
So this is a fun little trip outside of disneyland parks and into my own home town to let you learn a bit more about the little link between my home town and DCA.
Here we start at DCA the California Zephyr.
Lets get a close up of that Logo.
now lets see whats the link?
Behold The Feather River!
The great Link!
on a side note Oroville CA is also home to Oroville Dam Tallest dam in the USA and Fills the Fether River Canyon with Lake Oroville.
this is where the water supply to Southern CA comes from (enjoy a taste of Oroville from Disneyland for FREE!)
Here we see a Real Western Pacific Engine notice it says The Feather River Route.
This is an Old Western Pacific engine In a park by the old Railroad Station in Oroville.
And Lastly the Oroville Deopot where the California Zephyr made regular stops untill 1972.
Western Pacific was bought out by Western Union and oficialy stoped using Oroville as a train stop except for cargo at a Round House a few miles out of town.
The Depot was sold to an entrepenure and is now a restraunt and Micro brewery.
The train you saw in the park is Rotting away while young people break the glass and steal parts off of it.
However next time you go to Disneyland and walk into DCA stop at the california zephyr and look at the nose of the engine and remember..
The Feather River Route once stoped at a small town and the feather river and the canyon that the train once wound through is in Oroville the smallest town reprisented in DCA at all.
