This Space for Rent

When did Portland Traction get a SW1500?

It's been a couple of months since I went past the Eng!s in the industrial park at the north end of Milwaukie, so it was a bit of a surprise to drive past this freshly painted SW1500 in Oregon Pacific colo(u)rs. The old working engine was around, but there was no sign of the new working engine, so is it possible that it failed and 1202 is the replacement for it?


Come to GorgeRail, attend the Oregon Pacfic tour on Sunday, and find out from the owner… :)

Yes, but Gorgerail (which I’m going to attend, if only the part at the Portland Traction & Brooklyn yards) isn’t until next month, and that leaves plenty of time for idle speculation now.

Excellent… it’ll be nice to meet you in person and put a face to the name.

In the meantime, speculate on… :)
