Shasta Trip - Winter 2008
I took my first weekend railfan trip with my oldest son up to the Shasta area. We started by a quick stop at Woodland on the way up I-5. We continued north and saw headlights coming south so we pulled off at the next exit and caught up with the California Northern job at Harrington. After a quick pickup, they were headed back to Woodland at maximum track speed. We chased it for a few miles and then continued our northward journey. The next morning we stopped by the wye at Weed to see what was around which was a GP38 and SD40T-2 sitting with a loaded Centerbeam flatcar. Another fan arrived on scene and it turned out to be another fellow CORP fan Fred Harrison. We chatted for a bit and then both headed down to Mt. Shasta for a meeting with Jeff Moore to talk about his recently published book on the railroads of McCloud. After a nice breakfast where we met a few fellow railfans, we headed to McCloud. It was very quiet so we headed to Dunsmuir. UP 7703 south showed up just as we arrived. It was clean so we gave chase down to Gibson and finally Vollmers. Sunday was a short day since we needed to get back to Sacramento so we only had 30 minutes to drive around the Roseburg lumber mill in Weed. There were many cars there including black and red WCRC bulkhead flat cars. The clouds and rain put a damper on any photos on our trip home but it was a great first trip for us.
