Re: Grass Valley Depot
I am not certain off the top of my which dimension is right. However the map
in best is quite old and might very well be incorrect. The best suggestion I
have is to check in the files section for the list of drawings by Herman
Darr and contact him, I don't remember if he did a full drawing of the depot
or not but I am sure he has a more updated map of the grass valley yards.
