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.
The weather was duly somber as McCloud River 2-8-2 #18 made what was expected to be its final excursion run on home trackage on October 17, 2004. Even the engine, already up for sale, seemed saddened at its imminent departure.
