Spare tires for Yreka Western #19
Author: photobob

Spare tires for #19 sit on the loading dock of the Yreka Western Depot in Yreka, California many years ago. Does anyone know what the latest fate is the #19?

Bob,

The #19 is still in Yreka. There is some known firebox work needed to get her FRA certified that has not been done at last report.

Given all the issues that have surounded this engine and the YWRR in general for the last few years, only time will tell what will ultimately happen to this engine.

There is no reason to believe that this engine will not operate again some day, but where and by whom would just be a guess at this point.

I was out in Nov of 08 for its final trip, I sort of lost track of just how much of Yreka Western's track is still intact?

Most of the track is still in place. All the track from the yards to the far West end was removed.
