McCloud River Railroad #25 puts on a show leaving approaching 7th St Crossing in Garibaldi. Taken during the Trains Magazine Skookum Charter in March 2019.
As usual with the last post of the year, I’d like to share a few favorite images. The image above is from the Wiscasset Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum in Alna, ME. A place I visited for the first time this year and look forward to seeing again. Below is the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, also a first visit for me and I’m looking forward to visiting again in March to see a rare articulated logging locomotive run:
Next is Multnomah Falls, located in the Columbia River Gorge:
Photographing B-29 Superfortress ‘Doc” was a happy accident and lots of fun:
The opportunity to photograph the battle from within the French Village at Mid Atlantic Air Museum’s WWII Weekend was another highlight:
As was photographing the wonderful reenactors:
Can’t forget Klotz. I had two opportunities to photograph this incredible time capsule:
And as always, I’m still working on editing photos from a few trips. Including a second trip to Klotz, Disney, Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, the Strasburg Railroad and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hopefully I’ll get those posted soon.
Happy New Year!
Continuing from last week’s Oregon Trip Report Part 1, The second morning of the trip starts in the small fishing village of Garabaldi, which is home to the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, for a Martin Hansen photo charter with the Polson Logging #2 pulling a log train and the McCloud #25 on a mixed freight. We covered a good portion of the line, stopping in several scenic locations including Garabaldi Pier:
Second Nehalem River Bridge:
Hathaway Slough Trestle:
Stasek Slough Trestle:
and back to Smith Lake for the night session:
Thanks again to Martin for putting on an excellent charter and also to Pete Lerro for leading the night session!
Look for Part 3, next Tuesday.
