If it can’t stay in Yreka I would love to see it come to Santa Cruz.

YREKA, Calif. – Yreka Western 2-8-2 No. 19 may soon have a new home. A sheriff's auction is set for the locomotive, a 1915 Baldwin product, on Oct. 25 at 10 a.m. at the railroad's shops in Yreka. The locomotive will be available for inspection on Oct. 24 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Payment by bank letter of credit or cashier’s check will be required from winning bidder at the conclusion of the sale. The winning bidder must arrange to remove the locomotive immediately from the property or arrange storage with Yreka Western.

Iowa Pacific President Ed Ellis tells Trains News Wire he will store the locomotive for the successful bidder for free on one of his railroad properties.

The 8.8-mile Northern California short line interchanges with Central Oregon & Pacific at Montague, but has not moved revenue freight for a number of years. In the mid-1990s, it carried less than 500 cars annually. It also operated steam-powered "Blue Goose" excursions beginning in the 1980s.
