The Mallet Shed

The beautiful old Cab Forward Enginehouse still stands in the yards in Dunsmuir. Up until the 50's, Southern Pacific maintained a large yard, complete with engine shops, a large roundhouse, and an employee hospital. Today, a portion of the original depot, a turntable and the Mallet Shed remain. The foundation of the old roundhouse can be seen from the river. Today, Dunsmuir is barely a blip on UP's radar. Deep down inside, Dunsmuir is still a railroad town.
