Thanks for your reply, Mark. I appreciate the old maps you showed me.
There is an historical kiosk on Sutton Way at the edge of the shopping
center (off Brunswick Rd) with a sketchy map that shows approximately
where the NCNG and Traction tracks were. I was intrigued to see that the
Traction tracks jogged North at Brunswick and went through our
neighborhood, so I was glad to find the larger map on the internet. It
makes sense to me because the detour through the Glenwood area makes for
a gentler rise up to the Town Talk summit than the relatively steeper
Nevada City Highway.
