In its golden era, Dunsmuir was once an important, thriving railroad community. Formerly named “Pusher”, this was the spot where additional locomotives were added onto the trains, to “push” them up the steep grade to Mt. Shasta. In 1968, the Murphy family, local descendants of pioneering railroaders, decided to collect and preserve the old rail era, by transforming rail cars into beautifully renovated units. A collection of cabooses, flat cars and box cars were acquired and work was started. “Murphy’s Pond” a popular swimming pond and the wine bar were the first phase of the project. In the years following, additional cabooses were transformed into motel units, a dinner house and lounge were added, as well as a swimming pool and spa which completed the project. A charming little site, this 'motel' consists of a dozen and a half rail cars permanently parked amidst attractive landscaping and a small pool. Site is next to a river at the foot of the gorgeous Castle Crags.
