Willits Roots of Motive
For those of you who have not been to Willits, or the Railroad
Museum there here is a brief introduction I hope will help you.
Willits is approximately an hour and 40 minutes headed north
on 101. You will want to get off the hwy and take 20 to get to
the town. Follow 20 until you see E. Commercial ST and turn
right there. You will pass the Skunk Train and then Recreation
Grove Park on your right before you get to the Museum on
your right. The Railroad area is near the Museum. Many of you
have been there, but for those of you who have not expect to
find engines and railcars all kept in excellent condition.
There will also be a variety of steam equipment. The yard is
mostly gravel with a few shaded building with displays. Expect
it to get hot and carry water with you.
The park is across the street and offers cool shade if you
find you are getting overheated. The museum is also a cool
place with many exhibits of interest.
