MNRR: 1011 at Canby, 650 at Road 70, and 3647 at Lakeview


October 30, 2008


By now, the 1011 had a traction motor burn out which seized an axle, putting the locomotive out of service on the siding at Canby, California.  That was the last time she would ever run for the Modoc Northern.  Sitting there, over time starting to be a victim of vandalization.  First it was her 5 chime horns...
