Big Creek & Telocaset- GE 44-ton #106


Big Creek & Telocaset Railroad
GE 44-ton #106

Almanor Railroad #106, to become Big Creek & Telocaset #106, at Chester, CA. Earl Spencer photo, from Pacific News issue #38. The BC&T never relettered the locomotive during its years of service on the road, and, except for the addition of large snowplows on both ends of the locomotive, it retained this appearance until the Valley & Siletz repainted the locomotive after its arrival in western Oregon.

The former BC&T #106, now property of Stimson Lumber Company, switching cars at their plant. The ex-SP bay window caboose is used as a spacer car so that the locomotive does not have to tread onto some of the more questionable spurs in the complex. Photo courtesy of Scott Anderson.
