Saturday May 27, 2023 was certainly one for the books at Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. Passengers on today’s Coastal Excursion Train got a real treat as they were the first passengers to ride behind our new locomotive, Craig Mountain Lumber Co. Heisler #3! The engine entered service late last year for a photographers charter train, after which more work was done to the engine to prepare it for revenue service. After extensive work over the winter months, the #3 pulled the first steam excursions in OCSR’s 20th year of operation.
A huge thank you goes to all of the crew who worked tirelessly to ensure that #3 would be ready to go for the busy weekend. Steam is back on OCSR!
Now you can ride behind this 106 year old time machine!
