Old railroad locomotive

Title

Old railroad locomotive

Description

Black and white image of an old railroad locomotive, identified as 104 Long --Bell, with two men standing beside it. Though museum records do not specifically identify either the engine or the men beside it, the locomotive is most likely a Baldwin locomotive run by the Oregon-American Lumber company. The Oregon-American lumber company harvested lumber in the Vernonia and Keasey area in the early 1900s, and delivered its lumber to market via a rail line that ran from Vernonia to Banks, and then into Portland via Cornelius Pass.
