See every kind of steam locomotive ever conceived to haul logs: Shays, Heislers, Climaxes, Articulated rod and Rigid frame Engines. You’ll see the Feather River Shays high on typical logging railroad S-curved trestles, getting a run at a 5 1/2% grade with 25 degree curves, and the fireworks pin-wheel of Climaxes tackling 6% grades on the Hillcrest. Watch Heisler locomotives dance around the log dump like daddy long legs spiders. And you’ll climb in to the cab as Rayonier Mallet #8 heads for tall timber and returns with logs of Bunyan size. Two versions of the McCloud River Railroad operation: first, a double-headed fan trip with an SP daylight consist and – in the 10 foot drifts of February – a sparkling vignette in brilliant sunshine with Mt Shasta towering behind.
