Photo of the Month - April, 2003
It's a snowy January day in 1989 as SD-9 4368 - with full light package ablaze - makes its way across Big Baldwin trestle with a Hillsboro-bound special consisting of a flat car loaded with parts and private car Yerba Buena. The Yerba Buena was refurbished in Tillamook by Steele/Raeder from ex-C&NW business sleeper Imperial Drive and is still in charter service for owner Rail Ventures of Sandpoint, ID. I don't know what the flat car was about, but it appears to have one or two passenger car truck frames on it, probably bound for Forest Grove. Photo by Neil Lang. January 6, 1989.
