We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.

  1. Up the tail track

    Up the tail track

    A McCloud Railway "Hill Job" is advancing up the tail track at the Signal Butte switchback. Once the caboose clears the turnout, the train will reverse direction and begin backing toward Mount Shasta City.
  2. No water today

    No water today

    The water tank at Hooper, California has seen better days. In just a few years, rail service will cease.
  3. The Long Reverse Move

    The Long Reverse Move

    A McCloud Railway train is backing into Mount Shasta City, California and the interchange with Union Pacific.
  4. Doubling the Hill

    Doubling the Hill

    The second cut of McCloud Railway's "Hill Job" climbs the 4% to the Signal Butte switchback.  That is Mount Shasta looming in the background.

  8. Out of the shadows

    Out of the shadows

    EJ&E 654 comes into bright sunshine on the Illinois River Line (IRL). To the best of my knowledge, this is one of only 2 "J" SD-38's that still have the "J ball" logo on the nose, the other being 650. With the acquisition by CN, get 'em while you can.
  9. EJ&E SD38 654

    EJ&E SD38 654

    EJ&E SD38 (non -2) 654, one of 4 remaining engines in the J-Ball paint, is the DPU (very unusual) for JSW1 at Crest Hill. 662, also in J-Ball paint, was the leader.
  10. Unrebuilt EJ&E 650 sits in Joliet

    Unrebuilt EJ&E 650 sits in Joliet

    EJ&E 650 holds westbound in Joliet. The engine is a non dash 2 SD38 and it still wears the old paint scheme. It is the only unrebuilt non Dash 2 SD38 on the system. It is due to be sent to Gary for a rebuild to dash 3 standards as well as new paint soon.
