The webcam system is currently down due to equipment failure at the museum. We are attempting to restore service.
The Western Pacific Railroad Museum Webcam looks northeast from the Museum's Diesel shop. The view shows the RIP (Repair in Place) tracks, the museum entrance, and the Union Pacific Portola yard.  The yellow building in the distance is the UP Portola Yard Office. The camera refresh rate is every 12 seconds and auto refreshes.
