Jim Satterwhite General I was stationed at Hickham AFB in 1980-82 and narrow gauge tracks were still to be found around the base. Was this photo taken in 2010 or earlier? 2/29/2012 5:25:13 PM
david gorton General was taken in 2007, by the google earth car. I worked at the weather center behind cincpacfleet at pearl harbor 1991-1994, the tracks were then still being used from Hickam to barbers point. I emailed the railroad club there, and they never replied, was trying to find out if the track was still there. Google earth shows the crossing is still there on the road to Eva beach on HI 76. I lived in Eva Beach for a while, and had for a while a video of the first train crossing the Grade in over 10 years. They were wig wags with no gaurds, but they are gone right now. (Think that is what was used, If i'm wrong, bad memory.) I do remember them doing the 'Dong Dong Dong' bit. 3/1/2012 12:00:22 PM
