Spring in Shasta
A four day trip to the Shasta area starts with a chase of the California Northern at Corning. The next day we meet up with ''Photo'' Bob Morris and chase some trains south from Dunsmuir. We catch a Z train at Castella, Gibson and Salt Creek. The next morning, we get started a bit earlier and catch a Southbound approaching Dunsmuir. We then head over to McCloud and make a stop at the shops to see any changes and find a crew of contractors sorting reclaimed ties. On the final day, we start at Weed to find a single Central Oregon and Pacific unit sitting on the wye. Later, I catch a loaded northbound ballast train approaching Mount Shasta before I head to Cantara Loop to watch a pair of trains including the morning Z train heading south. A quick call to PhotoBob and we''re ready for a chase to a new location for me, a bridge crossing the Sacramento River after exiting a tunnel. As we head back to Dunsmuir, we hear a southbound so we decide to intercept at Mott before heading to lunch. After dropping off Bob and Rhian, I head back to Mott for another southbound and end up back near
