Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. McCloud Railway No. 25 is a 2-6-2 locomotive that worked on the McCloud River Railroad. It was purchased new from the American Locomotive Company in 1925. On July 3, 1955, the locomotive was the one that ceremoniously opened the Burney Branch by bursting through a paper banner with a special excursion train. At some point after this, the locomotive was retired. In 1962, No. 25 was restored for excursion service, and served in that capacity until passenger service was once again terminated in 1975. The 25 was one of four Prairies from ALCO, numbered 22-25, which were purchased for a total cost of $90,000. The 25 was the largest and last steam locomotive purchased by the McCloud River Railroad. At the time, the McCloud was a logging railway, and the 25 was used in this function until June of 1955, when it was replaced by GE 70-ton switcher No. 1.
