End of the line! Mt Shasta is the only remaining link to civilization the McCloud River Railroad, McCloud Railway has left. With its opposite end BNSF connection permanently closed all traffic now flows through this yard. The railroad originally mated up with the SP at Upton CA, but shortened it’s run by connecting at Sisson, so to be renamed, Mt. Shasta City. McCloud trains back into this yard, after having switched directions at signal butte the train runs the rest of the way, back to front. Trains run engine first up the hill, engine last down the hill.
