CALIFORNIA SHORTLINES







Après vous avoir parlé d'une autre shortline en Californie rappelez vous Arrow http://teamtrack.xooit.com/t723-Pacific-Harbor-Line.htm Smile me voici de retour avec une autre...

Central California Traction Company


Quant on pense californie tout de suite c'est LA UP SP AT&SF loin de ces sentiers plus que battus Rolling Eyes et à défaut de faire de faire une de ces compagnies sur 2m carré
voici une shortline qui opère entre Sacramento et Stockton à dimension humaine
j'ai choisit de vous présenter cette compagnie par ce qu'elle à tout Okay un logo sympa une déco qui l'est également, une zone d'opérations avec de la diversité où l'on peut trouver un port, du street running
diverses industries variées et de petit convois dans des zones rurales appartenant à l'arrière pays Californien Arrow San Joaquin Valley



Arrow History

The Central California Traction Company (reporting mark CCT) is a Class III short-line railroad operating in Northern California. It is owned jointly by the Union Pacific and BNSF Railway. The railroad extends from the Port of Stockton to Lodi, California. The railroad at one time extended from Lodi - Sacramento, but that portion of the line has been out of service since 1998, although the tracks remain in place. The line currently operates between Lodi and Stockton and operates the Stockton Public Belt Railway around the Port of Stockton.

Incorporated on August 7, 1905, the Central California Traction Company was originally conceived as a second streetcar line for the citizens of Stockton as an alternative to the Stockton Electric Railroad. September 1, 1907 saw the beginning of electric passenger train service between Stockton and Lodi, in direct competition with Southern Pacific Railroad. By August 1910, the line had reached Sacramento and passenger trains began through service. Almost immediately came freight service as well. CCT's freight operations carried merchandise, livestock, and produce (primarily grapes, strawberries, and sugar beets). At its peak, CCT was operating 36 passenger trains a day, over and above its freight operations.

Because of CCT's interurban style of operations, CCT used overhead wires in the cities of Stockton, Lodi, and Sacramento, but power between the cities was fed by a covered third rail that was energized at 1200 volts DC. CCT was one of the first railroads to use the high tension DC power in the United States. Power in the cities was still at 600 volts by catenary.

CCT underwent a management change in 1928 when CCT's owning family tried to sell the company to the Southern Pacific. What followed was a struggle for control between the WP, ATSF, and SP Railroads. Ultimately in 1936, the ICC decided that the three railroads would share CCT. While the struggle for control raged, CCT fell to the economic climate of the times and on February 4, 1933, CCT's last interurban passenger train made its final run. CCT's freight operations continued under electricity, but demands on power created service problems. And, in 1946, CCT made the switch from electricity to diesel with the arrival of a pair of GE 44-tonners. On December 24, 1947, CCT dropped their pantographs for the last time... CCT was dieselized. CCT has provided 100 years of service to the Central Valley, that is, from 1905 to 2005.

Arrow Operations

CCT provides switching service to Penny Newman Grain and Duraflame products as the result of a lease of the UPRR Scotts street lead in January of 2008.

Central Valley Branch: Operations are five days a week between Stockton and Lodi. CCT serves agriculture, manufacturing, and the wine industry in Lodi, with transload facilities in Stockton and Lodi. The CCT mainline from Stockton to Lodi has been rehabilitated from 75lb rail to 112lb to 136lb rail new ties and ballast and 10 new concrete road crossings between Stockton and Lodi. These were done in partnership with the City of Lodi and the San Joaquin County Council of Governments to remove track from Downtown Lodi. CCT has available industrial development properties on the line between Lodi and Stockton.

Line Capacity: 286000 lbs.

PORT OF STOCKTON BRANCH: CCT is the operator of Stockton Public Belt Railway at the Port of Stockton, the second largest inland Port on the West Coast and third largest Port in California. CCT also has its Headquarters at the Port. At the Port are over 35 customers and warehouse facilities and the former Navy Rough and Ready Island Complex. CCT has six Transload providers with facilities having a capacity of 350 car spots. There are two cement terminals. Also, one of the largest Ethanol storage terminals is on the West Coast. Two of the country's largest Building Products distributors are located at the Port of Stockton. The Port has a deep water channel and handles ships with a draft of up to 35 feet. The Port of Stockton has a warehouse space and land available to lease at very competitive rates. There is a room on the Port West Complex property for possible automotive, intermodal, and a bulk rail-to-water Transload systems. The Port in the past year upgraded 8500 feet of trackage for new customers and will work with new tenants to provide rail-served industrial sites and warehouse sites with rail and truck access by working with CCT and BNSF and UPRR. The Port is near Interstate 5 and State Highway 99, giving customers quick access to water, rail, and highway. The Port of Stockton is a secure site with 24/7 security. There is an-on site power coal cogeneration facility at the Port of Stockton. A bulk ship unloader and rotary car dumper with a 90-car loop track are available for loading and unloading of bulk products to or from vessels. On dock, trackage provides direct rail access for vessel loading and unloading.

Line capacity: 286000lbs.

CCT provides shipment management and car control, billing, and tracing using the RMI Rail Connect System and has access to the UPRR and BNSF computer systems to provide shipment tracing and logistic services for customers. All movements are reported to the AAR and Railinc.


Stockton port

En allant sur Bings map j'ai pu me rendre compte de la zone d'opérations surtout celle qui se situe autour du port de Stockton
ce qui est intéressant c'est la variété d'industries (grain bulk oil scrap coal containers etc...) ainsi que les installations




on y trouve un mini chantier naval également

Oui en fait ils 'agit plus d'une caisse et chassis de GP35/40 au fait c'est Brookville avec deux o petit constructeur spécialisé il y a fort longtemps dans le critter/ industrial switcher datant de la première guerre mondiale Exclamation
Eux et leur pollution Rolling Eyes me font rigoler quant tu vois le traffic sur Los Angeles, je ne sais pas si quelqu'un ici à déjà conduit dans cette zone sur l'US5 ou le 110 c'est l'enfer
alors c'est pas quelques malheureuses bouzines qui vont égaler la population de camions niveau pollution, et génèrent le smog au dessus de Burbank Glendale Pomona etc....

LESLIE SALT


Arrow History



As long as people have lived in the Bay Area, they have harvested its salt. Native Ohlone gathered salt along the Bay's edge, collecting it from natural salt pans (salt flats) by the shore. As the Spanish moved up the Pacific Coast, the padres at Mission San Jose introduced large-scale salt harvesting. Decades after the missionaries departed, the Ohlone continued to gather salt at the Bay’s edge. Their efforts inspired Capt. John Johnson, who launched the first commercial solar salt harvest from the Bay in 1854. A former sea captain and disappointed gold miner, Johnson made his fortune selling his first salt harvest for $50 a ton to the commodity-starved 49’ers.

Johnson soon attracted dozens of competitors and in a few years, the price dropped to $2 a ton, along with many entrepreneurial fortunes. Nevertheless, salt continued to play a vital role in the Bay Area and state’s economy. From the late 1800s, Bay salt processed silver at the Nevada mines, cured cheese, preserved meat and hides, and packed fish. Economic booms and busts and the growing mechanization of the salt harvest led to both to the improvement of the salt quality and a consolidation of the salt industry.

From Picks and Shovels to Air-Conditioned Vehicles

Salt harvesting has never been an easy undertaking. Man first scraped salt from the natural salt pans with Stone Age implements. Forged steel replaced rock and stick tools during the 19th century but it remained back-breaking, pick-and-shovel work until 1936, when the mechanical harvester was invented. Emerging with the best patent, the Leslie Salt Company quickly out-produced and absorbed its competitors. Leslie also designed an narrow-gauge, portable railroad to transport the salt from the crystallizers to the wash house. These miniature hopper cars and diesel locomotives were light enough to follow the harvester onto the salt crystallizers yet strong enough to pull 20 tons of salt without sinking into the underlying clay soils.

Harvest crews worked 24-hour shifts, five- six- or sometimes seven-days a week, in the blinding September sun and bitter December nights. Harvesting salt, like other seasonal harvests, is a race against time. It starts late in the dry or growing season and ends before the winter rains reduce the yield.

For more than 60 years, the mechanical harvester and miniature railroad worked the crystallizers. Thousands of visitors who marveled at the mechanical ingenuity employed to reap the mineral harvest. Though engineers and machinists continually tinkered with the design to improve efficiency and durability in the harsh salty conditions, the machinery remained fundamentally the same.

Then in 2001, Cargill began implementing new, more efficient harvest techniques that capture more salt using less land. Not only did these changes benefit the company’s bottom line, but, more importantly, they improved the safety and comfort of the salt harvest crews. More efficient operations also helped Cargill to free up 16,500 acres to donate and sell for permanent wildlife protection.

Today, instead of scraping the salt all the way down to the mud bottoms of the crystallizers, eight-inch salt floors have been allowed to build up. These salt beds both hasten and improve the crystallization process. Even more important, they are sturdy enough to support heavy dump trucks that now drive onto the crystallizers and carry the loads of salt from a new style of harvester.

Modern equipment may not be as picturesque, but it is far safer, more comfortable and more efficient. Harvest crews no longer battle the hot September sun and sleeting December nights. Today, they bring in the salt, enclosed in the quiet, air-conditioned cabs of their mammoth vehicles.

Company History

Before the microchip stamped the Bay Area’s business identity as Silicon Valley, salt-making (like crabbing, tomato processing, and mining oyster shells) was a premier local industry and Leslie Salt was a familiar brand to all Bay Area residents.

In 1979, Cargill Incorporated, a Minneapolis-based food, agricultural and risk management company, bought Leslie Salt keeping the company name until 1991,and the Leslie label until 2003.

At the industry peak, Leslie (Cargill) produced 1.3 million tons of salt annually from 40,000 acres in the North and South Bay. Three major salt plants operated in Napa, Redwood City and Newark, site of the salt refinery and company headquarters.

Changing market conditions and a desire to protect wildlife habitat through public ownership have dramatically changed the salt pond landscape. In 1994, the Napa salt ponds, which were built to supply salt to Dow Chemical in Pittsburg was donated and sold to the State of California for a wildlife preserve.

Cargill announced in June 2006 that its Redwood City facility, will wind down operations in the coming years. In 2003, the Redwood City barging and docking facilities – long a Peninsula landmark -- were sold. Fifty acres of the Saltworks was carved out and construction of a recreational marina began.

By far, the most significant change occurred in 2003 when Cargill Salt, donated and sold 16,500 acres -- all of its evaporator ponds to the state and federal governments for wildlife enhancement, while retaining perpetual operating rights on 9,000 acres. Despite these changes, Cargill continues to serve the West Coast market with high quality salt products and remains the Bay Area's only commercial salt producer, a descendant of Capt. Johnson's first salt ponds.

La shortline se trouve à Newark dans la baie de San Francisco
c'est une voie de 24 inches qui dessert les salins et l'usine principale les opérations de cette shortline ont malheureusement étaient stoppées en 2001
sur la première photo on voie un yard qui de trouve à côté Arrow Newark yard qui jouxte le corridor Roseville à Los Angeles via San Luis Obispo, ex Southern Pacific route



les box cars sont amenés pour le chargements des sacs de sels










Je trouve ce thème intéressant, il sort des sentiers battus le complexe impressionnant peut être compressé mais il est amusant à reproduire avec les "stockpiles" de sels
