Railroad Land Use ( 21:18:29 FriFeb 29 2008 )

Hello everyone;

I was wondering...I know they are withdrawn from mineral entry, but can we work these lands on a piecemeal basis?

Thanks in advance,

Eric

You need to look at Railroad land as private property. Prospecting is not a problem with the proper permission. Since railroad holdings are so vast it would be better if you got your permission in writing. You never know who you will run into and a proper piece of paper will save some disappointment.

In northern California, there is very little land that is still in the hands of the RR companies.

Most has been sold off years ago.

SP(Southern Pacific) Land Company controls what little remains in Siskiyou county. And, most of that is "timber lands".

As Rusty said, it's private property and you will need permission.

And what's the story with Fruit Growers? Isn't that who holds most of the old RR land nowadays? I was under the impression that they got irrigation water credits for land they held. Or did I make that up?

Back in the 70's & 80's I tried several times to get written permission. I could not find anybody that could or would give it. BUT, they all said "As long as you don't damage any grades or right of way, then I don't care." I was never challenged, but I was careful to work away from their tracks. Had many a work crew stop and talk and ask questions but never stopped. That was 25 to 30 yrs ago, no telling what will happen today.

Some larger company has leased all the mineral rights on the land owned by Fruit Growers Supply(FGS). Has had it for many years.

FGS did sell off most of their properties in Scott Vally a few years ago. Maybe elsewhere too?
