POTB 6164 Lost Train
For several days I searched the old POTB line between Banks and Buxton, OR for this vintage EMD SD9. I finally got a tip that it was in Timber. I drove down the windy forest roads to the tiny community, and sure enough it was there, and had been sitting for many years unused. Since July 2012, this locomotive has long since been scrapped. If anyone's wondering the location this engine was once at, the town is called Timber, OR. It's a tiny community out in the coast range and can be found on google or yahoo maps. The smoke in the beginning was only someone using the fireplace in a nearby house, not the engine being started.
Old trucks and tractors
Some pics I have taken of old equipment.

The D8A had been sitting there abandoned for 14 years until it got new owner. I was there to push it on the trailer.
