This last week has been a busy week on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad.
On Saturday May 14. We spent the day preparing the #25 and finished the day with a few test runs in front of the big hanger that housed the Tillamook Air Museum and is the temporary home of the 25.

On Sunday we worked in Garibaldi on #2 and test ran it on Monday evening.

The week finished on Thursday with the FRA inspection of both locomotives, which passed.

We will be finishing up a few items on the locomotives and starting the season with #2. Unfortunatly until we can build an addition to the shed in Garibaldi we won't be able to move the #25 north.

Now that's something you don't see everyday. An antique steam locomotive steaming out of blimp hanger past antique airplanes!

Very cool video.

Congratulations!

She sure looks great!

Any idea of when the engine shed will get done? I assume she's a bit too long. I'll be up that way in mid August and will keep my fingers crossed!

Just as a quick sidenote, does the Port of Tillamook still own any rolling stock, or has it all been scrapped?

Steve,
We working through the permitting process right now. It sounds like it may be a couple of week before we can begin actual work on the shed expansion.

G.H.Lines,
POTB has a few cars left. It the MOW equipment. Mostly flatcars with a few ballast hoppers and side dump cars mixed in.

No Locis then?

When you said "rolling stock" is was thinking cars not engines. The POTB currently rosters 4 SD-9s; 6139,6119,6164,4406. 101, the cow painted engine, was purchased by an OCSR member and will join the GN 274 in Garibaldi when the necessary inspections are complete in the near future. All other engines have been sold for parts and scrap. It was sad to watch the process over the last couple of years. OCSR is hoping to acquire 4406 and restore her to SP "Black Widow" glory.

If I may a suggestion, restore it in bloody nose and NOT black widow.

There's already one SD9 (in Oregon, even) in Black Widow colors, and several other GP9s in Black Widow colors (including one in Oregon, albeit lettered for a different railroad.)
