    Default Copper Basin Railway

    The Copper Basin Railway(CBRY) was in support of the MAGMA Copper Mine in Superior/Hayden Arizona in support with the Southern Pacific Railroad. In the next few Thread entries I will tell you what I've found out about this facility. I model this line in N Scale. I'm a die hard Southern Pacific fan, and anything dealing with the Southern Pacific interest me. And the CBRY dealt with the SP during their hay day.

    Oddly enough, I grew up in the little town of Florence, AZ and always wondered what the tracks were on the north side of town, across the Gila river. It wasn't until i was grown up and had flown the coop that I researched it. Turns out it was the CBRY! There's a short youtube documentary/video of that line somewhere. I'll dig it up and post it here.

    http://www.shortlinesusa.com/CBRY.htm Amazing such a small world. I have been meaning to get down there and take photos for myself hopefully soon. About 20 minutes away I will see what I can do.

    Beat you to it !! There are quite a few videos up on it now. It makes for a nice little modeling idea for sure.

    Looks like CBRY is an extremely well-run company
