Fireman Mickey Zatocha in the cab of McCloud Railway steam locomotive no. 18. The 2-8-2 Mikado-type locomotive was built by Baldwin in 1914 and shown here pulling an excursion train near McCloud, California, in January 2005. The photographer, who has pursed a career in railroading, credits Zatocha and Malen Johnson
, the train's engineer, as early mentors.
