The Yreka Western RR is about 7 miles long and runs between Yreka and Montague, CA and is accessible at the bottom of an of-ramp of I-5 in central Yreka. I-5 is a major North-South highway between Mexico and Canada. Currently, the equipment for freight is a 1957 GE SW8. Freight would be products from a lumber mill that would provide about 5 chip cars, 6 center-beam and/or flat cars of, (plywood) laminate and 2 flats of peeler-core, each day. A second mill owned by Fruitgrowers Corp. is currently under construction and would have an unknown number of daily cars to ship their product(s). These cars would be interchanged with the G&W in Montague. Nothing has moved over these rails since 2008, so the RW likely needs some work. There is a steam locomotive currently bogged down legal procedures that has been used to pull an excursion train since 1988. But let's consider the locomotive and passenger cars, (none exist on site at this time). If you owned the YW, how would you make this operation, or one like it a success?
