To/from Winterail
Author: wpamtk

Thought I'd post a few photos taken while going to and from Winterail. Decided not to include Albany & Eastern 1750, since it's already been shown. Please bear in mind that these digital photos were taken "around" my 35mm photography.
Thursday 3/16--
Yreka Western 19 at Montague, being tied down for its trip to Ohio.
CORP's Hornbrook Turn returning to Weed, passing Mt. Shasta near Gazelle.
Headed to dinner at the former-Oregon Electric Railway depot in Eugene.

Friday, March 17--
Coos Bay Rail Link's train tied down at Mapleton, due to slides ahead.
Toledo Railroad Museum's collection. (Unfortunately, PNWR's Toledo Hauler was nowhere to be found.)
PNWR "GP38-3" #2005 tied down in Corvallis. Despite the rebuild, it retains it's original GP35 appearance.

Sunday, March 19--

PNWR SD7R #1501 switching in the Albany yard.
CORP GP38-2 #2036 in the yard at Winchester (north of Roseburg).
Modoc Railroad Academy #2309 at White City (industrial park outside Medford). Rogue Valley Terminal power was parked inside their enginehouse.

Anybody know the 2309's heritage? It has the squared housing on the end of the long hood suggesting a B&M or C&NW commuter-service Geep. Roof-mounted air tanks make me think ex-C&NW.

I thought that the Toledo Railroad Museum had a steam engine on the property?  No?

Nitpick alert!  Not quite.  The paper air filter box ahead of the dynamic brake housing
tells me this engine has been deturboed, hence it's GP38-3 designation.  

This was an interesting series of photos, thanks for posting.

I agree regarding the air filter box. I was referring to the unchanged radiator fans.
