Well, the Amtrak Coast Starlight runs north from Sacramento in the middle of the night with an early morning stop in Dunsmuir (south of and down the hill from Mt. Shasta City). You'd probably have to look into a way from the airport to the Amtrak stop (the airport is north of downtown). Then you'd have to get from Dunsmuir to the trailhead, and would likely have trouble checking out any other peaks (Shastina and maybe Eddy could still work out).
