Those few shipments represented the first time the county-owned railroad had sent items by rail from Alturas to Lakeview, a distance of about 55 miles.

The privately-owned timber had come miles from Southern California. Hart said Fremont, which is part of the Collins Companies, had planned to ship logs to its mills in Lakeview and Chester, Calif. UP officials told Hart that no additional service will be available until at least September. We were all excited because it was good for the county, good for the railroad, good for the Fremont Sawmill," Hart said. The Fremont mill, however, is remaining busy because it has purchased the first salvage lumber sale from the Winter fire.
Fire-damaged trees from the fire are being harvested, and the first logs arrived in Lakeview last week. The Fremont Sawmill has 80 hourly employees, and about total employees, and operates two shifts daily in its Lakeview sawmill and one in the planer mill. The mill processes about 60 million board feet of lumber annually, with about 70 percent being pondersosa pine, 24 percent white fir and a smattering of lodgepole pine and cedar.
Only about 15 to 20 percent is harvested from Fremont-Collins lands, with the rest from public and private sources. Ray Simms, director of the county-owned railroad, said the railroad would have to significantly increase its operations if the logs had been sent by rail from Southern California to Lakeview. The railroad makes about two trips to Alturas a week.

The county took over the railroad in November , and in early it was sending only four carloads a month. Perlite is used for various building construction and horticultural purposes, including potting soil and soil amendments.
The railroad installed 25, new ties and 32 miles of track, hauled and spread 40, yards of ballast, and replaced a half-mile of lightweight rail with heavier rail. The railroad employs three to four employees. Item location:. Ships to:. This amount is subject to change until you make payment.
