Portola Centerpiece

Portola Centerpiece

Probally the engine that made Portola famous, this wonderfully restored WP awaits you at the entrance to the former WP shops, now the Portola Railroad Musuem. More photos at www.tailsnrails.com
The engine that made Portola famous was the WP 921. This one was the first one to get a quality restoration paint job. Now we are trying to raise funds to get it restored for running on a mainline. That means a blue card and reliability to keep the FRA and UP happy. In the mean time, plans are in the works to rebuild 921 and repaint her in a correct WP silver and orange paint scheme.
