Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad
Nothing beats seeing glorious steam in some of the most beautiful locations in the world!
The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad is one of the west coasts most well known historic railways and is a subsidiary of the Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad. What some might call the pride and joy of their steam fleet, the McCloud River Railroad #25 was chartered to pull a mixed train from Girabaldi to Wheeler, as well as from Nephalem River Canyon to Salmonberry, Oregon!
#25 was the engine used in the 1986 movie classic Stand By Me
Built in 1925 by the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) #25 has led a long and fulfilling life that most engines can only dream about! The engine has seen three full careers as well as retirements, and after being purchased by the OCSR she is making excursions once more such as the one seen in this clip!
