Finnish Railways 418 - Junction City, Oregon
Author: asheldrake

Working on a article for the PNWC-NRHS newsletter The Trainmaster describing the Honorary Counsul of Finland in Portland efforts to find a home for this locomotive that, thru his efforts, was donated to the City of Portland in 1958 by the country of Finland.   I am in search of photos of the transportation of this locomotive from Finland to Portland in 1958 and photos of the locomotive being moved from Portland's Oaks Amusement Park to its eventual home in Junction City in 1980.   
It resides in Junction City in a shelter purpose built to house this historic 1904 built Tk2 2-8-0 broad gauge locomotive as part of their Founders Park, right next to the OE Portland & Western Railroad line in downtown Junction City.   This locomotive's sister resides in St. Petersburg, Russia.    
Appreciate any help.   thanks,  Arlen
