Auxiliary Locomotives of the Pacific Northwest

Railcar Milton Creek to Nehalem Valley 1916

A short line railroad built from Milton Creek on Scappoose bay along the Columbia River south to the Nehalem valley, penetrating one of the finest forest regions of the coastal region. Pasenger service was used here to reach some of these remote areas. This photograph was taken about 1915.

Gorgeous railcar out of Scappoose, Oregon. The fella on the left appears to be a guard or something, judging by his danger flag there.
