Chevrolet for the truck, not too good on locomotives, however.

Chevrolet it is. This circa 1923 photo was taken at the Mount Tamalpais & Muir Woods Railway depot in California. The truck is about a 1923 model as well. The Shay locomotive is a real beauty, and we have a better picture of it below. Notice the observation tower on Mount Tamalpais in the background. George Murphey had this 1st. Our photos are from the Online Archive of California.

Mt Tam is a California State Park unit. The old RR right of way are hiking and biking trails currently.. It was known as the crookedest RR in the world.. Gravity cars carried folks to the bottom without an engine...

I lived there in the '50's and my wife worked for St Parks for several seasons more recently there.. a great number of car commercials you see on TV are filmed on their roads..

the building at the top was used for many things, currently a fire lookout..
