Lake County Railroad LCR #474
Nature of Firm
The LCR provides freight service from a connection with the UP at Alturas, CA to the end of the line at Lakeview, OR (55 miles). Lakeview, OR is the only station on the line, and the LCR serves no customers at Alturas, CA. Traffic is wood chips, perlite, lumber and agricultural products.
The company is owned by Lake County, OR, which bought the line from the Southern Pacific when they abandoned service in May 1991. LCR began service November 1, 1997 and was organized to assume operations of the line formerly operated by the Great Western Railway of Oregon.
