100 Years Apart - Steam Operations At Salmonberry

These 2 photos are almost exactly 100 years apart at Salmonberry, Oregon on the Southern Pacific Tillamook Branch.

The first photo was taken on Saturday as OCSR ran the first Steam train to Salmonberry in 60 years.

The second photo was taken by H.L. Arey at that same spot in 1914.

Under the bridge you see the confluence of the Salmonberry River in the foreground and the Nehalem River coming in from the right.
