Californias sawmill and railroad industries grew up together - each at least partially depending upon the other for survival. However - not all of the Golden States sawmills lay upon the routes of mainline railroads - resulting in the development of a number of shortline railroads connecting remote sawmills with the nations rail network. In addition to serving the lumber industry - these shortlines often became economic lifelines to other industries in rural parts of the state. Many of these railroads also carried passengers - either as part of their common carrier service in the early years and/or as tourists in recent decades. This book seeks to tell the stories of and relate the important historical roles these small carriers played - long lasting companies such as the Almanor - Amador Central - Arcata & Mad River - California Western - Camino Placerville & Lake Tahoe - McCloud River - Quincy - Sierra - and Yreka Western - along with younger start-ups such as the Eureka Southern - North Coast - Great Western - Modoc Northern - Lake County - Lake Railway - and others....
