Welcome to the Western Pacific Pages, part of the Rattenne Family of Pages web site.
The Western Pacific Pages showcases online articles, information and links related to the WP, the finest little railroad in the West!.
From this page you can explore articles and roster information relating to both the pre- and post-merger WP. There is also special section on the Tidewater Southern. For an even more in-depth go to the Tidewater Southern dedicated website maintained by Eugene Vicknair.
Much of the material presented here is from the author's previously published material, all of which is currently out of print and only available from Railroadiana book and magazine collectors.
I've added a pair of self-produced videos, one called Tidewater Tour and the other Night Shoot! Tidewater Tour is just that, a 30 minute tour of the line shot between 1992 and 2002. Night Shoot shows hightlights of the night photo session I conducted for the 2013 WPRHS convention in Sacramento.
