The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad has answered a call for help to rescue a deteriorating steam locomotive and trainset on local display, averting the potential sale or scrapping of the equipment and setting the stage for its eventual restoration to operation.

The Lions Club of Garibaldi had purchased the locomotive, Baldwin 2-8-2 No. 90, in 1963 when logging company Rayonier Inc. converted its Hoquiam, Wash., railroad to diesel power. The 90-ton locomotive, built for Rayonier predecessor Polson Logging Co., was purchased for its scrap value of $1,250, and shipped to Garibaldi along with a coach and caboose for display in a park in the small fishing village.

The equipment has been subject to weather and salt air ever since, and its deteriorating condition became a concern to the Port of Garibaldi, owner of the land where it was displayed. In 2018, the port ordered that the Lions Club needed to repair or stabilize the locomotive or it would have to be removed, with a deadline of May 8, 2019.

90 2-8-2 BLW 59071 03-26 20½X28 48” 185,100 35,700 180
Polson Log. Co. #90 Hoquiam, WA
Rayonier, Inc. #90 Hoquiam, WA 1948
Oregon Memorial Steam Train Assn. Garibaldi, OR 1963
(display in Lumberman’s Memorial Park)

At the time the plan was to run a steam excursion train but at the time the Southern Pacific was very anti-steam so the #90 went on display.

Here are some photos of the display that I took back in 2017.

Other than Rayonier #90, the display also includes a passenger car (unknown heritage) and SP caboose #85.

That coach looks suspiciously like a former Spokane Portland and Seattle car, such as the pair preserved at Snoqualamie.
