McCloud Rails: Photos by George Landrock

George Landrock hired out as an engineer on the McCloud River Railroad in 1974. He worked for the railroad from then until July of 1977, when he took a leave of absence to go to work for the Oregon, California & Eastern Railroad out of Klamath Falls, OR. George continued to work for the McCloud on an occassional, as-needed basis until about 1978 or 1979. After a stint on the OC&E he went to work for Burlington Northern. He is currently a locomotive engineer with Amtrak in western Washington. These are photos he took of the railroad through the years.
