Another source for San Jose historical photos
The Accent plant was between Stauffer Blvd. and the SP spur on the west side of Monterey Highway south of downtown San Jose. The plant was torn down in the late 1980's, and now has modern warehouses. See this page of the San Jose SPINS maps for more details. As an added bonus for an interesting layout, the other side of the tracks held the General Electric San Jose plant, with spurs both for the "motor plant" and "atomic plant". Just the thing for your glow-in-the-dark paint schemes...
[Both photos from Sorisseau Academy. I was really hoping to find one of the Moody Gulch oil field photos from "Santa Clara: Harvest of Plenty", but not much of their collection is online. Time to visit San Jose State.]
