Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad

One of two steam locomotives in regular service: a 2-6-2 built in 1925 by the American Locomotive Company. (An art card available in the railroad's giftshop)
"Founded by Scott and Kim Wickert in 2003 the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad has grown from its humble beginnings dodging freight trains in Garibaldi on weekend runs to Rockaway Beach and Wheeler to the sole operator of 46 miles [74 km] of the railroad between the Tillamook airport and a point 2 miles east of the railroad siding of Enright in the Oregon Coast Range. The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad offers excursions operating daily in the summer months and special excursions operating year round."
