Visit the Fern Creek & Western

Hauling freight in 1921 coastal California

Theme:    Mountain Narrow Gauge in Coastal California
Description:    It's 1921 on in Coastal California as the Fern Creek and Western Railroad is in full swing. Two 2-8-0 Consolidations, #12 and #13, both products of the Spectrum Locomotive Works, are in charge of an extremely long freight extra over the Birch Mountain Narrow Gauge route. The locomotives power the train in tandem, with the 12 on the head end and the 13 mid train, from Ericsville to Camp #2 at the summit of Birch Mountain. The #13 then cuts out of the train so the #12 can continue downgrade solo to tie up at the Parkston Yard with its train. This is a comprehensive look at the operations on the Fern Creek and Western Railroad, and it is not a program that you want to miss.
