Photos: Swan Song of Siskiyou Steam

BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON - This week's photo update completes coverage of my autumn trip to California. The final portion of the trip took me to the far north of the state, Siskiyou County, for a pair of steam-powered railroad excursions. On 1-November-2008, the Yreka Western ran what may be its final steam trip between Yreka and Montague, California, and then on 2-November-2008, the McCloud Railway ran a railfan trip out of McCloud, California toward Bartle and then up the 4% grade to Signal Butte which was almost certainly the last excursion before locomotive #25 is sold. It may have been the swan song of Siskiyou steam.
