This Space for Rent

Railroad picture of the day


When I was coming back from Kobos this afternoon, I saw this excursion train parked on the Portland Traction mainline opposite Oaks Park. I was accelerating for the ramp up to Spokane street, but that took a backseat to the far more important job of stopping and getting a picture of the Eng! and its associated train.

From the looks of things, it was being used as a birthday train (there were a bunch of adults setting up a table with goodies and balloons on the ex-Simpson caboose/coach) and, I suspect, was waiting for the birthday mob to pour out from Oaks Park for a ride up and down the river.
