Steam switches revenue in 2006, Tillamook Oregon
Author: zoohogger

Sept 19, 2006.   Tillamook Oregon.
The Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad was still in business. The big washout is a little over a year away.
On this day there was a special out on the line and Curtiss Lumber # 2 needed to be moved with the cars from the Blimp hangoer to Garibaldi, OR. for the evening excursion.
#2 had to wait a bit at Hampton Lumber near 3rd street. Once the special was past, Scott decided to move some cars around to save time the next day.
So we see # 2 doing revenue switching.

1.  A special from the coast passes and heads towards the blimp hanger and shops.
2. 2 spot sets the passenger cars over and goes to work moving the center beams.
3. Looking towards 3rd street.

Rare! - You caught what might have been the only steam-powered revenue freight move in the US and Canada that day.

I'll bet it was the only steam-powered revenue freight move in the US and
Canada that day, that month, even that year.

I can understand the move, that probably saved a ton of time that following Monday for the reqular crew, still sucked that mudslinde put that part of the POTB out of buisness though, I bet traffic was very consistent at the time too!
