To access the collection click the Eastman Originals Collection link on the left side of the page. On the next page enter "McCloud" in the "Search These Items" box and click the "Go" button. This will bring up the 74 images on four pages that contain the keyword "McCloud". Some are of a community play; others are taken on the McCloud River arm of Shasta Lake. However, most are of either the town of McCloud, the sawmill, or the outlying log camps on Pondosa and White Horse.
This is the Special Collections home page for the California
State University-Chico library. Two valuable resources on this page- select either the "Historical Photograph
Collection" or "California Historical Topographical Map Collection" out of the menu bar on the right. Entering
McCloud in the Photographs section will bring up 48 historic photographs, most of which are in and around the town
or the sawmill The Map collection contains a good many historical maps, several of which show the
McCloud River Railroad.
This website presents lots of information about visiting Siskiyou county. Included are links to a lot of local business and local Chambers of Commerce. The McCloud Chamber of Commerce page has a well done history page of the town, along with several historic photos of the railroad.
This is the on-line photography store of Robert Morris Photography of Dunsmuir, CA. Bob is also the official photographer of the Shasta Sunset Dinner Train, and his work has shown up in just about all of the promotional materials for the company. Lots of photographs of current and recent operations of the railroad. Also a lot of photographs of the Yreka Western Railroad.
This new link is to a site by Craig Bass. It has some good photos of freight operations in 1996, some detail shots of the Bartle tank, and some photos taken of the Pondosa branch and the Lookout line in April of 2004.
Lots of information on the Green Bay & Western, which was a sister road to the McCloud in the Itel shortline railroad empire. Doing a search for “McCloud” in the site search function will turn up several pages within the site that present information on Itel boxcars.
Rapidly becoming one of my favorite sites on the internet. Site is mostly devoted to the Southern Pacific, but check out the Shortlines page for photos of small railroads in
will be one of the railroads featured eventually.
