October 9, 2018

In early 2003 a desire to chronicle the history of railroading in McCloud, California, prompted me to start the McCloud Rails site on Trainweb. In 2005, Craig Nolan launched a site of his own at this domain. Our two sites coexisted for many years. Recently, Craig decided to move on to other pursuits, and he offered the domain name to me. I decided to move McCloud Rails over to this domain, which has become effective today.

I've reset the Updates sections to reflect only changes made to the site after this date. The old McCloud Rails site will stay up, but all future updates and improvements will be done on this site for as long as I decide to keep the domain active.
