This past weekend we loaded up our scooters with a change of clothing and some camera gear for a trip down to Eugene, about 150 miles south of Portland. The plan was to take only back roads and see what we’d come across. In the middle of nowhere I spotted these train engines parked so I pulled over to get a couple photos before moving on.
I’ve taken quite a number of photos of trains in the past but this was the first time I could walk around one without someone yelling at me. It was alsovery tempting to start climbing on it to get a couple other photos from the top side, but I didn’t.
One of the other things we noticed was an unusual telephone booth made of concrete surrounded by some old tires. I guess these phones allow conductors to call into the dispatcher or something…this one was not in operating condition.
