SP Business Car Oregon at Dunsmuir
Author: photobob

I forgot when I took this but I believe it was the early 1990's. The business car Oregon came to town with a single unit and some kind of hopper car. It is shown here in front of the Dunsmuir Depot with 7504 East leaving town after a crew change. The fueling tracks were still in use to the left of the photo as well as a number of helper units.

I seem to remember the Oregon in the West Oakland coach yard around that time. Seemed to live there alot in the mid 90s.

At that time the "Oregon" was perforning geometry/laser track inspections. I photographed that same consist on the Modoc Line on 8/30/96. Sometime later the "Oregon" was damaged by a fire.

My memory keeps telling me that the Oregon still survives, but with a different name and owner. Have I got that right? Probably a different color too?

I belive you're correct. Can't remember where it went to myself.

The car currently belongs to the Tri City and Olympia railway out of Richland, WA and is stored on the Mare Island division in Vallejo, CA. There are a couple of stray photos on our website.

OREGON - famous for its latter day stained plywood interior.

Beautiful! Looks like the 7504 was down to just one working headlight bulb.
