Brimstone chartered as common carrier in May 1942 as a successor to a series of lumbering roads. It operated until April 1, 1966, in one form or another. Known locomotives were shay #2 (c/n 2910), #35 (c/n 2366) and #36 (c/n 2804). #35 ended up at the Yolo Short Line in Woodland, CA in 1996 and #36 was to the Cass Scenic RR in W. the 1980s.
