Folks, on August 8, Saturday, the Mt. Rainier Scenic will run three steam locomotives, including newly rebuilt and very rare Willamette No. 2. They have had a fire in her for the first time in many years. A Willamette is identical to a Shay, but built by the Willamette works in Oregon. This will be an all day event with lunch served. Check out their website at http://www.mrsr.com/ 2-8-2T No. 17 and Climax No.10 will also operate. Departure at 2:30 PM and return at 7:30. Photo runbys, BBQ. I was thinking while being that close, why not go down to Chehalis on Sunday and ride one of the 1PM or 3PM rides with Harold and No. 15? http://www.steamtrainrides.com on the Chehalis-Centralia Steam operation.
