Quincy Railroad (California)
The Quincy Railroad (reporting mark QRR) is a 3.27-mile terminal railroad located at Quincy, California. The QRR interchanges with the 
Union Pacific (former Western Pacific) at Quincy Junction in Plumas County, California.

For many years, the Quincy operated a separate 23.3 mile branch running over former Southern Pacific branch from Wendel-Susanville, California which is now abandoned.

The railroad handles over 1,000 cars per year of outbound lumber and forest products. The QRR is owned by Sierra Pacific Industries.

The QRR has two locomotives:

QRR 5 is an EMDSW1200 built in November 1950 (Builder No. 13459)
QRR 12 is an EMD
SW7

Three Quincy locomotives, QRR 4, an AlcoS-1, QRR 3, a GE 44-ton switcher, and QRR 1100, an EMD TR6A, are now located at the nearby Western Pacific Railroad Museum. QRR 2, an Alco 2-6-2T, is currently at the Niles Canyon Railway.
