Norman Carroll - I am trying to reach you. I am your ex-wife _-- Garza's daughter. Please e-mail me at mmg_garcia@live.com. I would like to ask you a few questions, please. I am hoping you are the correct Norman Carroll... I will verify your identity by asking for her first name. Thank you and I sincerely hope to hear from you.

My dad fired 231-232, the Sacramento Daylight, in the late 40s. Compared to the regular passenger rolling stock it was a delight. I also loved the train from Sacramento to the Oakland Mole and the ferry to frisco. We picked up the refinery smell around Fairfield, the bay [untreated sewerage] smell at Vallejo and, as the ferry neared frisco, the delightful coffee roaster/bakery smell, since then eliminated by the pollution laws. As for a new right of way, ain't gonna happen.

P.S.
What a Valentines Day if you are reunited affectionately with your Ex, but then that's just the romantic in me. Of course, it could be child support... Good luck mmg_garcia
