I grew up on Glenn County Road XX with the Colusa branch running along the east side of the road. We expected one train a day. Lime stone was hauled to Holly Sugar in Hamilton, and during the season, there were long trains of sugar beet cars. I loved the sound of those locomotives! One night I heard a truck out on Highway 45 with a train horn and my first thought was, "Why is that train coming through so late?"
Do you have any pictures or information about The Colusa Branch? Please
