#25 Date unknown, photo credited to Givens.

The #25 played a big roll in the opening festivities celebrating the completion of the Burney extension in early July 1955. This photo was taken at the Pondosa water tanks preparing for its first day or work after the ceremony. The #25 worked out of Pondosa for about another year until rail operations out of the camp were phased out. From the Dennis Sullivan collection.

This mural was designed by McCloud school children and was painted on the tender of the #25 specifically for the opening day ceremonies on the Burney branch. The mural remaines on the tender to this day, but under many coats of paint added in the years since. From the Dennis Sullivan collection.
