I may go visit the new location of the railroad museum. Portland is the home city to the nationally famous Southern Pacific Daylight No 4449.
It shares quarters with SP&S 700. 700 is a local favorite at Christmas time.
This photo is of another engine with local roots during its operational days. The Oregon Railway & Navigation 197 is undergoing restoration.
All three engines ran through Portland until they were retired to Oaks Park in Portland to rust and be vandalized. Two out of three are already back on the rails and the third is in the works.
June 2017 is my 60th birthday. Where did the time go?
