The views of trains from Hwy. 70 in the Feather River Canyon are just another bonus for rail fan photographers when they visit Plumas County. Among the attractions are the Pulga Bridge (lower left), and photographing a train as it crosses a tall trestle in Indian Valley (left). The Western Pacific Railroad Museum (below) in Portola is home to North America's largest and most complete collection dedicated to telling the story of one railroad. It is also one of the few places where you can experience rail history in a truly "hands-on" way. Come sit in the cab of the world's largest and mightiest diesel locomotive, climb aboard passenger cars from the California Zephyr, and take the throttle of a real locomotive under your control.
