Baldwin Logging Mikado #90 - 2

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 23 August 2010 in Transportation and Portfolio.

This Baldwin logging Mikado was built in 1926 for the Polson Logging Company of Hoquiam, WA as their #90. #90 continued to operate out of Railroad Camp after Polson became Rayonier Incorporated in 1945 and was retired in the early 1960s. #90 was then sold to the Oregon Memorial Steam Train Association in 1963 and moved to Lumberman's Park in Garibaldi for display. A local group is considering restoring #90.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

A very good idea to restore it! I saw some such things done in different parts of the world with such old steam locomotives and even whole trains! (But why MIKADO?)

Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Eric Superb machine! Steam engines are all wonderful. The prefer high-speed trains now. Although it is well said! They are much more romantic! Best regards, Adela.

23 Aug 2010 4:32pm

@Fonts: Thank you Adela! Yes, the old steam locomotives were a much more romantic means of transportation. Today they have removed the enjoyment from travel in the interest of speed..... ;-)
