McCloud River Railroad
The McCloud Railway

Everyone has to start somewhere. This was the first time I had my name in print next to a feature article.

This article had its genesis in a discussion on Yahoo!'s Shortline Railroads group in early 2004 about the demise of the Lookout Line. A post I wrote about that event got turned into a news item in this magazine's Wins and Losses column, which in turn paved the way for this article.

Unfortunately, The Short Line doesn't have anything on their website about back issues, but this issue occassionally shows up on eBay and might be available through back issue magazine dealers such as RailPub. Direct link to The Short Line's website:
