Union Pacific 8895, Dorris, CA

Fast moving northbound Union Pacific 8895 leading a lengthy run of hoppers that appeared to be empty, racing through the tiny town of Dorris, CA. Located between Mt. Shasta and the Oregon border, it's a city in the Butte Valley, Siskiyou County with a booming population of 939 according to the 2010 Census. The rail line was formerly operated by the Southern Pacific Railroad, which named the town in 1907 after livestock owners, Presley A. and Carlos J. Dorris. The Dorris brothers raised stock in Little Shasta in the 1860s before moving to what became known as Alturas, CA in 1876.
