Big Mountain, Small Train

The northbound MRVPW (Roseville Yard - Albany, OR, - Interchange with Portland & Western RR) passes through Cougar, CA. Cougar is a great spot to capture a train with Mount Shasta in the background.


I had the pleasure of shooting this train with a nice gentleman named Bruce, from Wisconsin. I showed him some of my favorite places to catch trains in the Sacramento River Canyon earlier in the day. I always meet the nicest people when I'm trainwatching!
