History

The line was originally part of the narrow gauge Nevada-California-Oregon Railway (NCO) and was constructed around 1908. In 1926 the NCO became an operating subsidiary of the Southern Pacific Railroad (SP). By 1929 the NCO was entirely operated by the SP. In March 1985 the SP filed to abandon the line and the abandonment was approved 5 months later. Lake County purchased the line from SP on January 18, 1986, to keep the line open. The county contracted with the Great Western Railway to operate the line.

The LCR began operations on November 1, 1997, when it took over the 54.45 miles formerly operated by the Great Western Railway.
