Napa Valley Wine Train

Four MLW FPA-4 (former VIA units) numbered 70 through 73 are on the Napa Valley Railroad roster. A pair of MLWs is the scheduled power of the noted Napa Valley Wine Train which runs daily, sometimes twice, between Napa and St. Helena north of San Francisco. RS-11 no 62 which came from California Western RR seems to have replaced the GE 65ton no. 52 for the local switching but the GE is still at hand.

If you want to learn more about this operation see the official Napa Valley Winetrain homepage
