At today's Boeing Employees Model Railroad Swap Meet in Kent, WA., I purchased 2 issues of Pacific News. An excursion ad from the July, 1972 issue:
July 8 and 22, Saturdays -- 100 Miles with Steam. Special McCloud River Railroad excursion will operate up the 4% grades to Signal Butte on July 8 & 22 and again on August 5 and 19. The train, consisting of two McCloud Harriman coaches and open bench excursion cars will be operated twice a day at 10AM and 2PM from McCloud and a single round trip will be made from Mt. Shasta City departing at 11:30AM.
